This month’s Patch Tuesday addresses 65 vulnerabilities, with 18 of them labeled as Critical. Thirteen of the Critical vulns are for scripting engines and browser components, impacting Microsoft browsers and Office. Three remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities are patched in the Windows DHCP Client, as well as an RCE vuln in Windows Deployment Services TFTP Server and Privilege Escalation in Microsoft Dynamics 365. Adobe’s release is light, with only two CVEs patched in Photoshop CC and Digital Editions.
With constant growth in the IT infrastructure, and with services going in many different directions (in-house assets, data centers, cloud ecosystems, etc.), it is getting very difficult to keep track of changes, version controls, and much more. This is leading to even more difficulty in managing such infrastructure for multiple clients.
This month’s Patch Tuesday is very large, with 74 vulns being addressed of which 20 are labeled as critical. Fifteen of these critical vulns are in the Scripting Engine and browsers, with the remainder being GDI+, SharePoint, and DHCP. Microsoft also issued an Advisory for an Exchange 0-day, along with a patch for one of the two reported vulns.
Although this is not a new feature in Kaseya, I feel as though it is one of the most rarely used. Live Connect on Demand installs a temporary agent on a machine which allows Live Connection to that specific machine, up to a maximum of 12 hours. The best part of this being that as the agent session ends, the agent is automatically uninstalled from the machine.
This month’s Patch Tuesday is medium in size, with 47 vulnerabilities covered and only 7 labeled as Critical. Twenty-six of the vulns apply to Windows Servers and Workstation operating systems. Two of the Critical apply to Hyper-V and could lead to RCE on the host system.
Kaseya has now started working even harder towards product improvements, and with more and more acquisitions, they have further expanded their IT Complete Platform. During the last product release webinar, multiple announcements were made regarding the release process, upcoming functionality, new product additions to the portfolio, and more.
First, let’s understand what DRaaS is:
DRaaS stands for Disaster Recovery as a Service. It is the scenario when the service provider manages a virtual machine or a physical machine replication from the production data center to the secondary location or cloud.
To ease up the process of patch management, the Patch Management filter head, under View Definitions, lets you further refine a machine ID / machine group filter based on different patch status attributes/conditions, as seen below:
View filtering can be applied under allfunction pages by selecting a specific View from the drop-down list or Create New.
Cloud Backups, or backing up data to a remote online Backup Service Provider, is an essential service that every organization requires as part of its Disaster Recovery plan.
In this blog, we will talk to you about Checkpoints that you should look for in your Cloud Backup service provider.
The ProVal Tech team had the opportunity to get together a few days in advance of IT Nation in Orlando. For a team that works mostly remote, apart from our office in India, this presents a great opportunity for folks to bond. ConnectWise, as always, put up a great show and played wonderful hosts to over 3700 people coming in from every part of the world.
