It's Patching Time Again

Dang, it's almost the second Tuesday of the month, and you know what that means: time for some patching. This month, there are nine fixes to contend with, with five deemed critical.

I know I sound like a broken record, but pretty much all or most of the patches plug remote code execution (RCE) holes. As is happening more and more frequently, one patch plugs multiple products, like the critical patch for everything from Office Small Business Accounting, Office 2000 and 2003, to BizTalk, Visual Studio and ISA Server. That's one well-rounded patch!

On the OS front, again one patch repairs RCE problems in clients from Windows 2000 to Vista, and servers from Windows 2003 to 2008.
