Patches and Updates

I recently reviewed the November OUCH newsletter for SANS. Bill Wyman put together an extensive list of commonly installed software products (and the patch sites for each). I thought it would be helpful to share this with readers. This is used with permission. If you do not subscribe to the SANS OUCH newsletter, I encourage you to do so. Yes, I am a reviewer. Here are the links to patches for these commonly encountered systems.
