Wireshark 1.9.0 was published today. It's an experimental release for testing new features for the upcoming 1.10 version.
More updates arrived:
- Thunderbird 17.03 arrived yesterday. It fixes 8 security vulnerabilities.
- Apple released yesterday iOS 6.1.2, which can be downloaded fast as it is small (12.8 MB). So far, this update seems to be only related with a bug on echange calendars that increases network utilization causing battery drain. Better to have last version installed as apple does not always list in a detailed way all the fixes contained in an operating system update.

If you are easily confused like me, you may appreciate this quick summary as to the different updates released the last couple of days:
- Java 7 Update 15
- Java 6 Update 41
(in addition to Apple's Java update to the versions shown above)
- Flash Player Windows 7 and earlier 11.6.602.168 (Windows 8 and OS X is still use 167)
- Acrobat/Reader 11.0.02 (went live on Adobe's FTP server Wed. 20th morning)
Probably the most dangerous thing you can do when applying patches is to rush. You may not only end up with a broken system, but worse, the patch may not be applied correctly. Take the time to test that you are all up to date. Encourage your coworkers and relatives to visit browsercheck.qualys.com to test if all plugins are installed correctly.
