Novos System Updates

Item

Description Even the best system administrators rarely install updates as fast as they come out. And the poor administrators may never install updates at all, which makes having access to a bunch of updates potentially useful for looking for holes in their systems.

It's also, of course, handy if you want to protect yourself from Novos systems' attacks. So, it's a bit of a double-edged sword.
Type Data
Use You apply the update, hoping it'll keep you on top of things for at least a little while. Frankly, they usually send out several updates a day, so it might not be long before the other side catches up.

Or, if you have a different Patching Effect active:
You're already up-to-date in theory. Applying another patch on top of it will probably just make a mess of things. (not consumed, no effect)
Multi-use You let the updates start applying. It'll take a while for them all to churn through, but hopefully they'll keep you secure for the time being.

Or, if you have a different Patching Effect active:
You're already up-to-date in theory. Applying another patch on top of it will probably just make a mess of things. (not consumed, no effect)
Result You've gained 20 duration of Security Patched.
