What is Patch

A patch is updated computer code that is published either as part of ongoing development, or to meet known vulnerabilities and other problems in code. Most software vendors have sites that provide patches and hotfixes. All systems should be patched to the level recommended by the vendor as unpatched systems are like an open window into your environment. Many commercial operations and hacker sites provide online databases of known vulnerabilities and exploits.
