Microsoft Updates January 2017

Microsoft released a few new Windows updates this last week. It’s a very light month with only a few and none of them are relevant as far as any risk to our VPS.

The SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) has the best quick overview of the updates each month. https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/January+2017+Microsoft+Patch+Tuesday/21915/

New server location – Amsterdam, Netherlands

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering VPS (virtual) as well as dedicated servers in Amsterdam, Netherlands.   We are co-locating servers in Equinix data center Amsterdam (AM6).  A number of MT4 brokers have co-located a data center (DC) node in Amsterdam so this location may provide the lowest latency to some brokers.

We offer our popular trial VPS at this new location if you would like to test the site. Trial VPS can be upgraded to paid without losing data before the end of the trial if desired.

Microsoft Updates November 2016

Microsoft released new Windows updates last week. Looking at the list of updates this month there are none remotely exploitable externally (from outside the VPS) with the default configuration of our VPS. However, there are web browser vulnerabilities for Internet Explorer which could be remotely exploited if you visited a website with malicious code and were not updated yet. We advise minimizing your web browsing from your VPS for added security. Nevertheless, there are some important updates to also protect against local vulnerabilities including the usual cumulative update for Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers.

You can update your VPS by going to “Control Panel > Windows Update”. We recommend updating over weekends only and rebooting after.
