It’s Patch Tuesday again for all Windows sysadmins and this month’s delivery includes more fixes than usual.
Microsoft’s security bulletin lists 14 individual fixes including a fix for the recently discovered “FREAK” vulnerability. Of the fourteen fixes, 5 of them are rated Critical and the rest are Important.
Also included are fixes for issues in Internet Explorer, the VBScript scripting engine, a flaw in an Adobe font driver bundled with Windows, and issues in Microsoft Office. All of these could result in a remote code exploit so it’s vital that Windows-based systems are patched as soon as possible.
