Scam of the day – August 17, 2016 – Latest security update from the Department of Homeland Security

August 16, 2016 Posted by Steven Weisman, Esq.

Constant updating of the software we all use with the latest security patches and updates is a critical part of avoiding scams and identity theft threats.  Whenever new security updates and patches are issued, we provide access to these so that you can update your software to provide better security on your computers, smartphones, laptops and other electronic devices.  Updating your software with the latest security patches and updates as soon as possible is important because identity thieves and scammers are always finding and exploiting vulnerabilities in the software that we all use.  Delay in updating your software could lead to disastrous results.  However, it is also important to be sure that you are downloading legitimate patches and updates rather than being tricked by an identity thief or scammer into downloading malware under the guise of downloading a security patch or update.  These new updates in today’s Scam of the day from the Department of Homeland Security include critical new updates to  the Android operating system to correct vulnerabilities threatening the security of millions of cell phone users about which I wrote in a recent Scam of the day.  Also included are important security updates for Microsoft 10, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome.
