Patch Tuesday May 2020 Priorities

Get your priorities straight! You have to check the exploit rating: if this has a rating of one, it means that exploitation is more likely for this vulnerability. So it’s important to look at the critical ones but don’t forget that the most exploited vulnerabilities are rated as important. There are different metrics in place to help you prioritize like Exploitability Assessment, Publicly Disclosed or Exploited. Our Lansweeper report will help you prioritize, which are for this Patch Tuesday May 2020 edition:

  • Office and Sharepoint
  • Windows Operating System

Run the Patch Tuesday Audit Report

Similar to previous months, we’ve created an Audit Report that checks if the assets in your network are on the latest Microsoft patch update. It’s color-coded to give you an easy and quick overview of which assets are already on the latest Windows update, and which ones still need to be patched. All admins are advised to install these security updates as soon as possible to protect Windows from security risks.
