frank, this is not a kindergarden list. this not a housewife support
list. this is a security list, this a full disclousure list. period.
It also is not a list for the benefit exclusively of people who are
fortunate enough to have simple security problems. The security issues
surrounding the question "how do I keep my home computer safe from
attack?" are trivial compared to those surrounding the question "how do
I keep the 200,000 computing devices worldwide within my organization
from being owned and then attacking each other?"
Anyone with a truly complex security problem knows that it is hopeless
to ever really control many computers in the presence of many people.
You have no choice in a complex situation but to let things happen that
you think are beneficial to you (the vendor installing patches, in this
discussion) and find a way, after the fact, or periodically, to confirm
that the end result was in fact beneficial to you.
