What is patching in software?

When it comes to software, "patching" is the process of releasing updates (software codes) to fix bugs, add new features, or stop threat actors from abusing software vulnerabilities. Software and operating system (OS) patches are modifications to resolve security flaws in a program or product. Updates may be made available by software providers to fix security flaws as well as performance issues.
