Security updates for 1.1 and others. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm reviewing the list of updates for the .NET Framework, and I see there's one for 1.1. On most of the PCs we have 3.5 isntalled, migrating to 4.0, however we still have 1.1 on these PCs, as well as other versions. So if there is a security hole in 1.1 will 3.5 or 4 plug that hole? Or even a security update for 3.5/4? Or if there is a security hole in 1.1, despite having 3.5 et al, I should still run the update for 1.1?

  • If you have apps that *use* .NET Framework 1.1, you need to apply updates to that framework. .NET applications target a designated framework, so security patches to 3.5, for example, do not help 1.1.

    So, yes, you should keep any frameworks your apps use up to date.
