Patch Tuesday: A Fat One After All! Windows, Adobe Updates Galore!
Microsoft and Adobe have issued their round of updates today, as of 1 PM EST. The below details what was fixed.
First, Microsoft…Five of the 12 patches Microsoft released today earned “critical” acclaim. This means that attackers could exploit such vulnerabilities at any time.
Some of the vulnerabilities include: Windows implementation of Vector Markup Language (VML), Microsoft Exchange, and flaws in the way Windows handles certain media files. The remaining (critical) patch fixes a flaw only on Windows XP systems.
In today’s update, a patch for .NET may be included. This should be installed separately for best results. Install all other updates, and then do the .NET patch. This seems to be the best plan.
