Microsoft Patch Tuesday January



Sounds like this patch Tuesday will have a couple of updates in spite of the early release of the WMF vulnerability fix. Thanks to Microsoft for yielding that fix as soon as the testing was done. I would hope that it wasn’t just public pressure, but a sense of what the right thing to do is when there are exploits actively targeting a vulnerability.


Anyway, there will be a critical update for Windows, and a critical update for Exchange Server and Office. These updates may require a restart. There will also be an update to the Malicious software removal tool.

In total there are 4 other non-security “high-priority” updates to be released Tuesday. No others are expected.
