Your browser needs to be kept up-to-date
Your browser is arguably the most vulnerable piece of software on your computer or phone, since you use it regularly to access the Internet. Browser developers are constantly providing new features to keep you as a customer and to win new ones. This constant addition of new code, inevitably comes with more risk of unintended vulnerabilities. To protect you, browsers must be updated with the latest patches. Here’s where you come in.
It’s a balancing act for all software manufacturers to keep your software protected without impacting you and your work. From a safety standpoint, it would be best if they could install all updates immediately and reboot your computer when finished. This would not sit well if you were in the middle of a major presentation. What’s the trade off? Browsers handle it differently.
You should be aware of the update process of the browsers on your computer to make sure they are being handled. If you don’t, you may be at risk of intrusion until they are updated.
This article lists the major browsers and how to make sure they are up-to-date.
