Easiest Patch Tuesday in Recent Memory

I spent the weekend patching bicycle inner tubes -- something I do because they cost about five bucks each. When my patches fail, my bike can crash. This Tuesday Microsoft will unload its monthly supply of patches. If these fail, your machines may crash, or even worse, a hacker may have his or her way with your precious computers.

Fortunately there won't be that many patches, which should mean there aren't than many vulnerabilities to fix.

In fact, there are no, I repeat no "critical" bulletins and a scant two "important" items. Wouldn't it be great if every month were at light as this?

And the regular top targets, IE, Windows and Office, come through unscathed. Instead System Center Configuration Manager and Visual Studio Team Foundation Server get fixes.

Don't patch bicyle tubes. Life is too short, especially at our age. Buy new tubes.
