Massive Windows Update Tuesday



Microsoft had a mammoth patch Tuesday this month with 28 bug fixes (23 critical). (Computerworld article linked above. This is one of the largest update releases in five years (!) Those fixes were wrapped up in 8 updates for Internet Exporer, Office, Sharepoint, Windows media player and visual studio and Visual basic. (Oh and it looks like there are two more they SHOULD have fixed – reports of 0-days in the wild.)


It looks as though GDI is still a problem child, getting more updates this time around. The Internet Explorer update itself fixes 4 critical issues.

0-days information developing and will be posted seperately.

Patch quickly because with this many flaws in Explorer there are going to be even more sites out there trying to exploit these. (Not to mention the new one in the wild today.)
