Patch Tuesday Sets Record

Usually when you set a record, there's celebration, champagne, press releases and fanfare.

None of that happened for Microsoft this week when it set a high mark for fixing no less than 28 bugs. The patches came out yesterday and fix remote code execution as well as graphic device interface flaws. All of the patches, save one, are aimed at clients.

The number of bugs is due to the sheer complexity of Microsoft operating systems and applications, and the fact that Microsoft publicly fixes as many flaws as it can. And you thought you were in for a nice holiday break!
