Set your software to auto-update. Install updates and restart if needed.
Most cyber criminals exploit known bugs, for which fixes have already been released. When you apply your updates and restart your system, you are fixing those bugs. Updating your software is a simple way to keep your device protected from most attacks
Stop the Malware
Malware on your computer can steal your passwords or hold your data for ransom. When you install updates regularly, the malware fails. So, the next time your system prompts you to install updates and restart don’t delay!
End of the Road
If the updates stop coming, does that mean there are no more bugs? No! Manufacturers eventually stop supporting their older products as new ones replace them. If you’re using outdated products—such as iPhone 4 or Windows XP—plan to upgrade as soon as you can.
