Le « Patch Tuesday » existe depuis des années, mais on insiste trop sur les mises à jour Microsoft. Il est plus difficile que jamais pour le département IT de sécuriser l’environnement des utilisateurs.
La plupart des vulnérabilités sont identifiées et résolues par les fournisseurs et le département IT doit autoriser davantage de logiciels dans les environnements pour satisfaire les utilisateurs. Il ne suffit plus de mettre à jour les systèmes d'exploitation et les applications Microsoft. Nous utilisons des environnements hétérogènes, et Mac OS X côtoie des applications Adobe, Oracle, Google, Mozilla, Citrix et celles de nombreux autres fournisseurs dans les réseaux actuels. Cela rend la gestion des vulnérabilités particulièrement complexe. Ivanti va au-delà des correctifs d'application. Il vous apporte les conseils nécessaires pour trier la masse des mises à jour disponibles chaque mois. Vous pouvez ainsi déterminer les éléments qui nécessitent votre attention en priorité.
Consultez les analyses en amont sur notre blog Ivanti, qui résume les mises à jour dès leur publication. Rejoignez ensuite Chris Goettl, expert du domaine, pour le webinar « Patch Tuesday », qui présentera en détail chacun des posts publiés et vous fournira des conseils concernant les risques associés aux vulnérabilités nouvellement identifiées. Pour répondre à vos autres questions, consultez notre FAQ Patch Tuesday.

janvier 2019 (9 janvier)
Happy New Year! Celebration continues in 2019 with a mild January Patch Tuesday. But, make sure you’ve deployed Microsoft’s emergency patch, released post December Patch Tuesday, so attackers with a New Year’s zero-day resolution don’t suck all the fun out of your month. Also, take note of the public disclosure, and take this calm before whatever comes next to catch up on Java support changes going forward. Java SE 8 will soon receive its last public update.
décembre 2018 (12 décembre)
This December Patch Tuesday attackers have added a smattering of coal to the gifts in our holiday stockings. You don’t want the Flash exploits slipping down the chimney while your back is turned, so make sure Adobe is on your list for maintenance goodies. Attackers could also turn the lights out on your holiday festivities via a Microsoft zero day and public disclosure, so prioritize those CVEs—and make sure you’ve checked off the other updates before shutting off the lights on 2018. Happy patching and happy holidays!
novembre 2018 (14 novembre)
Each year in the states we fight to give our intrepid Thanksgiving holiday breathing room between Halloween and the impending onslaught of the Christmas season. So, as “Turkey Day” approaches for Ivanti’s Patch Tuesday team, we’ll take a quick moment now to give thanks for the latest updates that keep us employed. November Patch Tuesday offers up a bountiful selection of CVEs, including 60+ vulnerabilities resolved by Microsoft, Apache updates thrown in to add a pinch of third-party flavor to the affair, and in this mix a zero day and a dash of public disclosures. Take note, though: Like the turkey that will be front and center on our tables in a matter of days, all Patch Tuesday eyes should focus first on the Windows OS and Edge updates.
octobre 2018 (10 octobre)
Halloween is just around the corner for many, but October Patch Tuesday hasn't brought with it a host of vulnerability scares. The number of CVEs declined over recent months, so you have a little breathing room to get your house in order. As you plan your patching priorities, though, do keep in mind that Java patches will be out later this month.
septembre 2018 (12 septembre)
Across the globe the season is changing, but for September Patch Tuesday the forecast is much as it was last month—another zero day, some public disclosures, a light smattering of third-party updates, and 60+ vulnerabilities resolved by Microsoft. Déjà vu! Also part of our regular patch weather pattern these days, we’re reporting cases of elevation of privilege among the CVEs. So, as we say in this part of the world, “rinse and repeat” with your security procedures: 1) patch in order of criticality, and 2) make sure you have a multi-layered security solution in place.
août 2018 (24 août)
It may be summer in the part of the world where our Patch Tuesday team resides, but hackers don’t take vacations, the patches keep coming, and we’re in the trenches with the lowdown on patch priorities. In particular, you’ll want to address a couple exploited zero days making the most of not only software bugs but also those pesky admin privileges we’re always going on about. And as you get your patch updates well underway, make sure to read Microsoft’s advisory on the new L1TF Meltdown andSpectre variant to keep ahead of possible attacks on that front.
juillet 2018 (11 juillet)
Whether you're smack dab in the middle of the "dog days" of summer or entering the coldest month of your year, Patch Tuesday is, as they say, as constant as the weather. The same goes for patch management: This July we recommend you prioritize the Adobe and Microsoft updates and roll out all other patches in a timely fashion. Keep an eye out for Oracle updates too. And whether it's hot or cold where you are, don't forget to layer on security so the apps you can't patch don't expose your business to the elements.
juin 2018 (13 juin)
“April showers bring May flowers”—but did you know May flowers bring June bugs? A less known line from that poem for sure, but quite apt for a Patch Tuesday synopsis where software updates are the name of the game. This June there’s more grist for the mill, though there are fewer patches than we’ve seen of late. Take note of the fix for a new zero day targeting a Flash bug. And use this relative downtime to make sure your patch processes are in good working order. Remember: Meltdown and Spectre are back with all new bugs to banish from your IT environment.
mai 2018 (9 mai)
They say May brings flowers, but we're getting more Patch Tuesday showers this month. Get ready to defend against a heavy downpour of CVEs, including zero-days and other critical vulnerabilities. Rain is also in the forecast in the guise of public disclosures, so patch the holes in those systems before the deluge can begin. And finally? Some of this inclement weather is designed to grant the necessary access rights - so, remember, even with privilege management in place, you need to properly layer on security to keep the storms at bay.
avril 2018 (11 avril)
"April showers" the poem begins, and while it's not an all-out storm, April Patch Tuesday provides more than a sprinkling of updates, including critical patches. Take note as well of the out-of-band patch that protects you from an Elevation of Privilege vulnerability as well as the Java update. Java remains a common target for threat actors. In the midst of these clouds, though, here's a silver lining: Microsoft lifted the AV compatibility check prior to delivery of Windows security updates. It's full speed ahead on patching!
mars 2018 (14 mars)
March is synonymous with luck, and this March Patch Tuesday luck is on your side. There are some Critical updates. And Microsoft resolved two publicly disclosed vulnerabilities, so you'll want to patch those holes before someone turns your luck from good to bad. And of course - because they're far from as rare as a four-leaf clover - the Meltdown and Spectre updates continue to roll out. But all in all, it looks like you'll get your pot of gold this month in the form of time back to focus on core business goals.
février 2018 (14 février)
Are you feeling like you'd like to have poked your fingers into the center of the Meltdown and Spectre patches like a box of Valentine's chocolates? There were some unsavory surprises for sure. Fortunately, the kinks are largely worked out and February Patch Tuesday is more straightforward. If there is one word for this month in patching, it's not "love" or "romance" but "privilege." Patch the elevation-of-privilege vulnerabilities, and then take a closer look at your policy on privilege management. Make sure you're keeping attackers from storming the heart of your organization.
janvier 2018 (10 janvier)
It’s 2018, we’re resolved to help you secure your systems against whatever the new year brings, and January Patch Tuesday is bringing it! This month’s updates include a fix for a known Office exploit and a host of patches to tackle the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. About that last bit, though, take note: there is no known malicious use of these vulnerabilities to date. Take the time you need now to put the patches through their paces and get them in place, because this security issue is likely to tempt the bad guys.
décembre 2017 (13 décembre)
Patch Tuesday December is only a small flurry of updates. Total CVE count from Microsoft is 32 unique CVEs and none of these are exploited or disclosed at this time. Adobe has an update for Flash Player resolving one Moderate CVE. It is still rated as a Priority 2 update, which is why Microsoft has classified the Flash update for IE as Critical.
novembre 2017 (15 novembre)
The holidays are just around the corner. How, you wonder, are we going to tie those into November Patch Tuesday? Through tradition, of course! Because what are the holidays without that treasured recipe you replicate line by line each year? And what is security without steadfast adherence to the list of controls you've put in place? The KRACK vulnerability is another in this year's endless litany of reminders that keeping up with software updates is critical. Be sure you've pushed out the October OS updates - and don't let the tradition slip this month either, as there are quite a few Critical security vulnerabilities to patch.
octobre 2017 (11 octobre)
Around the globe, Halloween and related celebrations are right around the corner. In the states, this is the month of trick-or-treat and pumpkin patches. And out in Redmond, Washington, Microsoft is focused on patches of a different sort—keeping an eye on vulnerabilities hackers could use to unleash nasty tricks upon the world. For October Patch Tuesday you’d be wise to patch all Microsoft CVEs swiftly, publicly disclosed and otherwise, before more than just the one we’ve noted below get exploited.
septembre 2017 (13 septembre)
If Equifax andThe Shadow Brokers were any indication, September Patch Tuesday drives home the fact that security concerns are alive and well this month. There are some Win10 public disclosures to attend to, and plenty of other Critical updates to go around—so let the update party commence! Plus, this month’s zero day serves as a reminder to limit admin rights in your environment as well.
août 2017 (9 août)
August Patch Tuesday continues the trend of providing some time to get your house in order. Don't let the number of Critical updates fool you: most are expected. You can take those on and attend to some of the revenue-generating business goals waiting in the wings. With no exploits in sight, you might even find yourself whistling while you go about your day.
juillet 2017 (12 juillet)
May and June brought tornadoes of weaponized malware, but we appear to have blue skies in Kansas again for July Patch Tuesday. Don't get too comfortable, though. If history is any indication, we're in the eye of the cyber threat storm. So, use the downtime wisely: fewer updates today mean you can really focus on the public disclosures to get your house in order before the winds start picking up.
juin 2017 (14 juin)
Relative calm may have seemed the forecast for June Patch Tuesday, but it turns out we were in the eye of the storm. Adobe came aboard with a critical update. But more to the point, a red sky appeared this morning with a newly exploited SMB vulnerability, and Microsoft is plugging that hole in its boat today. It’s also taken the recent onslaught of attacks as a missive to review legacy software and release additional updates. It’s all hands on deck today for those still relying on older systems.
mai 2017 (10 mai)
There’s no fix today for Microsoft’s new “crazy bad” vulnerability in the Malware Protection Engine. Stay tuned and stay vigilant—while you tackle what May Patch Tuesday does have to offer. Top of mind should be the updates that patch exploited vulnerabilities as well as the Flash Player update. And in this second month since Microsoft nixed security bulletins, you’ll see we’re making tweaks to our approach to keep updates organized and easy to reference.
avril 2017 (11 avril)
Given last month’s torrential patch downpour, April Patch Tuesday was bound to make a quieter entrance-but that doesn’t mean that it sprinkled. Anything but, in fact. The list includes swan song security updates for one Windows OS and the first of many for another. And speaking of Vista: patch away, then deal with the aging software you can no longer patch. This month’s IIS 6.0 Zero Day underlines the need for continued vigilance.
mars 2017 (15 mars)
March Patch Tuesday certainly came in like a lion, with Microsoft releasing two months of updates at once. February’s SMB Zero Day disclosure made its entrance this month, IE updates struck out on their own, and those are far from the only bulletins to take the March Patch Tuesday stage. Rumors of the demise of Patch Tuesday Security bulletins have been greatly exaggerated.
janvier 2017 (10 janvier)
January has ushered in a new year of Patch Tuesdays with a manageable number of updates and no exploits or Zero Day vulnerabilities. This could be the calm before the storm. This is the lightest Patch Tuesday since January 2014. Next month you should expect some adjustments and more updates as Microsoft changes methodologies. This is also the last Patch Tuesday where Microsoft will use Security Bulletins.
décembre 2016 (13 décembre)
December Patch Tuesday has a flurry of exploits and public disclosures. Coming in to Patch Tuesday we already had one Zero Day from Mozilla (CVE-2016-9079), which updated on November 30th. Today Adobe released 9 bulletins, including a Critical update for Adobe Flash that resolves a Zero Day (CVE-2016-7892). And Microsoft is updating Flash for IE and resolving 5 publicly disclosed vulnerabilities.
novembre 2016 (8 novembre)
While the results of today’s US presidential election may be out of your hands, you can still impact the outcome of Patch Tuesday on your environment. You can’t buy votes for your favorite candidate, but you can buy yourself some time by implementing privilege management and application control. Reduce the risk of threats that could target your users before patches get applied.
octobre 2016 (11 octobre)
After several months with no zero day disclosures, October Patch Tuesday brings updates for four vulnerabilities already exploited in the wild. Beginning this month, Microsoft and Adobe are also changing how they distribute their updates, which may impact how you can access the patches. Finally, we are expecting a Google Chrome release today and Oracle’s Quarterly CPU next week, so plan on updates for Java JRE and many other Oracle solutions.
septembre 2016 (13 septembre)
This month's Patch Tuesday includes several critical updates that address vulnerabilities targeting end users, all of which should be considered top priorities. Both Adobe and Microsoft also released critical updates for Flash Player. September 2016 will be the final Patch Tuesday on the old servicing model. Starting in October, Microsoft has announced a change to the servicing models for all pre-Windows 10 operating systems.
août 2016 (9 août)
Google and Mozilla both released their critical updates last week, and there is plenty more to think about from Microsoft. This month, all five of the Critical bulletins from Microsoft addressed user-targeted vulnerabilities. If you haven't already, it may be time to consider adding privilege management as extra protection against these kinds of threats. Finally, if you are looking at the most recent Windows 10 update, you might want to hold off for a bit.
juillet 2016 (12 juillet)
Even though there are no Zero Day vulnerabilities, July's Patch Tuesday is far from boring. Several of the vulnerabilities are user-targeted and could be mitigated with proper privilege management - a good reminder of the value of a layered security defense in protecting against both unknown and currently unpatched vulnerabilities.
juin 2016 (14 juin)
It is raining in the UK and Adobe Flash Player has a zero day. Neither of these events are all that surprising. CVE-2016-4171 was observed in limited, targeted attacks by members of Kaspersky Lab. Adobe has announced an imminent release of Adobe Flash Player as early as Thursday June 16 to add to Microsoft's 16 bulletins.
mai 2016 (10 mai)
Patch Tuesday has a few juicy surprises for us. One vulnerability being exploited in the wild affects both Internet Explorer and Windows, and two public disclosures will raise concerns with Internet Explorer and .Net Framework. We also have a Zero Day in Flash Player.
avril 2016 (12 avril)
Leading up to April Patch Tuesday has been like the weather forecast with the stormy hype around the Badlock vulnerability that affects Samba and Windows. With Badlock, instead of rain, the reality is partly cloudy. There are eight total CVEs relatived to Badlock; only one affects Windows (MS16-047). The other 12 bulletins from Microsoft and updates from Adobe and Oracle should be the focus for this month.
mars 2016 (8 mars)
March Patch Tuesday brings lots of updates, but no public disclosures or exploited vulnerabilities -yet. The Microsoft updates tackle social engineering threats, addressing vulnerabilities the IE and Edge browsers and Windows, where users might be convinced to open specially crafted web content, files and media.
février 2016 (9 février)
February Patch Tuesday started a bit early with Oracle releasing an out-of-band update for Java to resolve a critical vulnerability that allows DLL Hijacking. Microsoft has released 13 bulletins, six of which are critical, resolving a total of 42 vulnerabilities. Of the vulnerabilities being resolved, two have been publicly disclosed. We also have releases from Adobe for Flash and Photoshop, Mozilla for Firefox, and Google is expected to release a Chrome udpate with security fixes and support for the latest Flash Plug-In.
janvier 2016 (12 janvier)
Microsoft has released 12 bulletins, nine of which are critical, resolving a total of 71 vulnerabilities. Adobe released a whopper of a Flash update resolving 78 vulnerabilities. Google Chrome is dropping today as well. Aside from an update for the Flash Player plug-in and its 78 security fixes, there are reportedly security fixes coming for the browser as well.
FAQ sur les correctifs du Patch Tuesday
Qu'est-ce que le Patch Tuesday et la gestion des correctifs ?
Le Patch Tuesday, fait référence au deuxième mardi de chaque mois, lorsque Microsoft publie ses correctifs, afin d’améliorer la sécurité de ses logiciels. Microsoft Patch Tuesday permet aux Administrateurs de Parcs Informatiques et aux Responsables Informatique, d'avoir le temps de déployer les mises à jour et correctifs de sécurité, de réagir, corriger, ou revenir en arrière, en cas de besoin.
Qu’est-ce qu’un Patch Windows ?
Les correctifs, ou patchs, servent à résoudre les vulnérabilités du système après la publication du logiciel. Plus le logiciel est populaire, plus il aura de correctifs, dû au nombre croissant de problèmes identifiés au fil du temps. Les correctifs peuvent s’appliquer à plusieurs logiciels, notamment les applications mobiles, les serveurs, les routeurs, les pare-feu, les systèmes d’exploitation, la messagerie électronique, etc. Les logiciels ne sont pas parfaits et les correctifs peuvent aider à prévenir les erreurs système et à renforcer la sécurité des utilisateurs.
Pourquoi faut-il appliquer les patchs ?
Ce n’est pas parce qu’un logiciel a été publié que les bugs, les failles de sécurité ou d’autres problèmes logiciels ne sont pas éliminés. La sécurité informatique devenant une préoccupation majeure, la mise en place d'un système de gestion des correctifs est vitale pour l'infrastructure de sécurité globale des entreprises. Des correctifs système sont constamment nécessaires pour maintenir les systèmes d'exploitation à jour et sécurisés. Le Patch Tuesday crée chaque mois une heure précise pour l’implémentation des mises à jour des systèmes logiciels existants.
