In addition, the researchers have determined that offline application of security patches is more than four times faster than online patch application. The tool is named after a Chinese goddess who patched a hole in the sky.

A paper describing the research, “Always Up-to-date — Scalable Offline Patching of VM Images in a Compute Cloud,” will be presented Dec. 10 at the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference in Austin, Texas. Continue reading …
