Confessions of a sysadmin

Simple solutions to problems like this

Systems that can't be patched need to be isolated, I don't mean lacking network communication. I mean isolated so that only designed communication to specified machines is allowed. It is called use internal firewalls.

No browsing from production non patchable computers enforced by a firewall.

It really is not that hard, I have done this in a production (factory/manufacturing) environment. It does not cost much and you don't need cisco.
