Updating your devices, whether that’s a desktop, laptop or a phone may seem like a real hassle. Being nagged by a notification every hour or so is really annoying, especially when you have lots to do. It’s so much easier just to ignore or delay those updates. No harm in putting it off until later, right?
Well, you could do that, but keep in mind that with every day you delay, the risk to your device or system increases exponentially. Modern malware, especially the advanced persistent threat variety, is extremely mobile and essentially relies on users being slow to patch vulnerabilities.
