It's really important that people keep up to date on software patches now that so many people are working from home. Normally IT guys would be patching this stuff and now we have to rely on people working from home so of course attacks are going to increase in the wild.

Mine always updates on it's own, never had to do it manually. though that might be because I close it out completely fairly often and it checks every time it starts up.
I guess for people who leave it open long term it might be a problem.
