Like I said, Do you REALLY want a vendor to install patches for you?
Absolutely. Have them send a technician ON SITE. Have them STAY and fix
the product until it is working. (Free of charge mind you... just like
the free repair of a recalled water pump for your car). If applied
patches crash the system further, it is the responsibility of that
technician (representing the vendor) to get it back in working order.
frank, this is not a kindergarden list. this not a housewife support
list. this is a security list, this a full disclousure list. period.
any adequate member of this list should and must apply security fixes
and patches by himself/herself, after testing. if there is no patches
released meanwhile, he/she should be reasonable adequate to take
measures to mitigate attack vectors until fixes is released. allowing
third party technician to access your system and installing unverified
paches is a serious security issue.
