Hi all,

Our UMD lablet director suggested that we use the SoS site to help us spread the word about a study we're doing on software updates. We are seeking participants to complete a short survey about software updates and for follow up interviews. Participants in the survey are entered in a draw for one of five $50 Amazon gift cards and interviewees will be compensated with a $15 Amazon gift card.

More information on the study can be found here. The link to the survey is here. You can participate if you live in the USA! Please consider distributing the call to interested parties - a strong response rate will help us to gather important data about how users deal with software updates in the wild - user behaviors being an often overlooked but important part of cybersecurity.

Do feel free to contact me for further information (or a blurb to send to mailing lists if you need one) and if this has been posted in the wrong place, let me know!

Working with various software updates is pretty complicated. If you don't have knowledge about it, I am pretty sure that you will not be able to solve anything because the subject matter requires extensive understanding. It has something to do with information technology, and might provide some important articles that can be helpful especially made for those who are still studying it.

I believe that we should

I believe that we should always follow the advises of people above is because the know better. That was the idea that was taught to us by our professors in college. I also got the chance to read something in and it suggests the same thing. Only if we are going to follow some rules, I am sure that our lives will be be better.
