Following up on our previous post sharing what was then breaking information about these vulnerabilities, the UISO would like to share some additional best practices to follow in order to reduce one’s risk to attack.
Install Operating System Updates on Personal Devices
Staying current with security updates on personal for security features is always advised, and all major operating systems not currently end-of-life have patches in place that aid in reducing risk. The following are guides for updating one’s operating system for those not familiar with the process.
For performance purposes, it is recommended to install one or the other of these extensions, but not both.
Research is still underway, and as further methods to mitigate the risk posed by these vulnerabilities are assessed by the information security community we will share them accordingly.
