Occasional Visitor

I have some Windows 10 (and possibly Office 2019) updates pending.

 

With news of successful exploits by the Russian hacking teams, can you assure me that those updates are free of viruses and other malware?

 

Aside from that, do you have other guidance you can provide?

 

I suspect other members/users may be concerned, as well.

 

Thanks,

Steve
