In the article Microsoft patches Windows, Lync Server Larry Seltzer states that there
will be many updates that are expected to improve how systems perform. One of these
improvements will be within the security measures. These improvements will go beyond
the normal security measures to ensure that systems are not affected. Some systems will
be required to be updated to ensure there system will be protected. According to Seltzer,
Microsoft has released four security bulletins and updates to address them. These four
bulletins are MS14-052, MS14-053, MS14-054, and MS14-55 (Seltzer).

3.) The first search engine that I used was Google.com. This then lead me to the website
http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/windows8.aspx#antivirus. For my second
search engine I used the search engine in the website techcrunch.com. For both engines I used
the topic Windows Security. I would have to say that both websites and engines were as helpful
as the other. Both engines that I used forwarded me to an up to date article or reference that
allowed me to gain an understanding on the new windows security updates.

Security Secrets and Solutions was published in the year 1999. This may not have updated
information that is relevant for my topic. The source Windows Server 2012 Unleashed was
published in 2013. Although this book was published a year ago it still may give me a better
advantage of finding updated information about my topic.
