Patch Tuesday for August 2015

It’s that glorious time of the month, time for all Windows sysadmins to apply the latest fixes delivered by Microsoft.

This month’s delivery includes 14 fixes with 4 of them rated Critical and the rest rated Important. In the Critical category we find fixes for remote code execution flaws that affect Windows, Office, the .NET Framework and more. Interestingly, in the first Patch Tuesday since Windows 10 was released, we find critical fixes for Microsoft’s new Edge browser too.

The remainder of the fixes address various privilege escalation and information exposure problems.

For the complete list of fixes see the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for August 2015.
