Microsoft Releases 10 Security Bulletins

In one of its biggest monthly "Patch Tuesday" events yet, Microsoft posted 10 new security bulletins, seven of them for critical flaws that could allow attackers to remotely take control of a computer.

The new bulletins are Microsoft's 29th through 38th of the year. They follow a month when Microsoft released only one bulletin for flaw in Microsoft's component for processing JPEG images.

The bulletins are:

  • MS04-029 for an important flaw affecting Windows NT 4.
