Do I need this: Windows Printers and Multifunction Printers security patch Ver.1.0.1

Hello, I have an MG6820 Canon printer.

Everything is working fine with my printer, nice unit too!!

I will be doing a clean install of my Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit operation system soon and I plan on installing the Canon driver: MG6800 series MP Drivers Ver. 1.00 (Windows 10/10 x64/8.1/8.1 x64/8/8 x64/7/7 x64/Vista/Vista64/XP).

 

This driver is dated 7/22/2015.

 

Do I also need to install the security patch driver Ver. 1.0.1 that I put in the subject line that's dated 8/31/20?

 

Thanks for any help,

Steve in Central Vermont

Re: Do I need this: Windows Printers and Multifunction Printers security patch Ver.1.0.1

Greetings:

What the security patch does:

 

The patch is to fix the folder vulnerability of the printer driver(s) installed in a PC. Without the patch, the applicable folder can be accessed and replaced by anyone if they directly log in to and operate the PC regardless whether they have the access right or not.

 

Basically it corrects NTFS folder level access permissions.  If you are the only person who will be using the machine the patch can be considered optional. It won't hurt either way.

Thanks for the reply.

I am the only one using this computer and printer so I will not install it.

 

Much appreciated!!
