As some of you are aware, I took a major hit on January 24, of this year. The situation and what I did after, is posted in the General Chat area under the heading of "What you did to fix the problem", it is pinned to the top of the list. It was very ugly.
My system is back to where I at least feel safe enough to get online. My problem is I am now getting vulnerability security errors about some updates needed from Microsoft. I get to the page for these updates, and receive the message that the page, update, yada yada is no longer active. I go to the MS update page, the updates are not listed in my needed list. I do not know if the updates were in the downloads I did after I got back online. I do not know if what Trend is saying is right or not, and it is not as simple as just "well they are not in my needed updates page from the upgrade site, so I must have them already". I cannot just let this ride because of the recent attack, if there is a problem, then I am still vulnerable to another attack. Trend sets the risk level for these updates as as high or extreme. If I cannot secure this machine, I can't work.
One problem I am having is with a driver that deals with the PCI Simple Communications Controller. I can't find the stupid driver for that.
The security problems that Trend lists are,
MS10-017; MS10-038; MS10-045; all high
I plan to go with the Windows 7 OS, I did the adviser thing and I can go with either Professional or Ultimate. Until then though, I need to secure my current OS so I can go back to work.
Any help is appreciated.
