Kaspersky has released updated installer versions of Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014. Both updates include the recently rolled out "Patch B", which adds support for Windows 8.1 and Firefox 23/24.

The update also fixes a number of bugs, but previously had to be installed separately after installing KIS 2014 or KAV 2014.

By integrating the patch into the final installer builds, users can now safely install either product on to a Windows 8.1 machine directly. Previously users would have been required to install the software in Windows 8.1, then apply the patch prior to updating to Windows 8.1, which would have been a convoluted process. Read more.
