All systems must have all appropriate software patches to protect against the exploitation and compromise of cardholder data by malicious individuals and malicious software. Note: Appropriate software patches are those patches that have been evaluated and tested sufficiently to determine that the patches do not conflict with existing security configurations. For in-house developed applications numerous vulnerabilities can be avoided by using standard system development processes and secure coding techniques.
