Abstract: The lack of patch management has been identified as the main reason for many ransomware attacks. The cost of patch management is still an obstacle for many small and medium-size businesses. There are many open source, free of charge, patch management systems but these require many pre-configuration steps making them complicated to use. Hence, this paper presents a patch management system that is cost-effective but also efficient in terms of set-up time. We have written the system in Python with Puppet and Mcollective to aid the configuration steps. An additional feature of this system is the ability to assess the security of the system being patched, using CVE scanning.
