How do you deal with security updates for scripts you are using?

Do you religiously update as soon as they are released or do you wait ?

How do I deal ? Badly :D

I'll normally wait a bit of time .. make sure its not broken something else unless of course its a major security issue in which case I'll try to upgrade immediately

Okay, but how are you going to know it's a major security update?

Do you keep an eye on the security bulletins? And I don't mean the ones issued by the developers ...

Hence I said badly ... :p

Its one of the reasons I asked for a feed / posts on the latest security releases on here (though for me now I think all the posts in those feeds are overkill) I need posts on maybe 10 different systems and a lot of the others I don't have time to check ... or I don't care ...

I guess a lot of the time we rely on the security issues not being exploited ..
