Security update

What is a security update?

A security update is a software patch or fix that's released by a company to address a security vulnerability or issue in their product. This could be a bug or flaw that could be exploited by hackers or malicious parties to gain access to sensitive information or to carry out a cyber attack.

A security update is designed to fix the vulnerability or issue and prevent it from being exploited in the future. It's important to keep software and systems up-to-date with the latest security updates to help protect against potential security threats.
