Security & Hacking: Chrome & Flash Updates

I got the Chrome Update late last night.

Chrome is supposed to update automatically, but I strongly suggest checking all your Auto Updates once a month or so, or at least quarterly.

Personally I don't trust Auto Updates, I use Calender alerts from my Smartphone Calender & computer schedule app (I don't like synching, because by having separate Calender apps I have backup redundancy that synching would destroy) to remind me to check updates on Patch Tuesday for Windows (I check everything on Patch Tuesday, not just Windows).

Part of that is that I used to rely on auto updates, but found that they were missing critical patches sometimes.
