Patch Pittance

Last week was one of the lightest Patch Tuesdays in recent memory, with a scant three fixes covering 11 known flaws. Two of the patches involve remote code execution, that old pest, and the third handles an elevation-of-privilege exploit.

Windows came out clean as the patches are only for the Forefront United Access Gateway and Office.

However, there is still a hole in IE that Microsoft plans to fix next month. Let's hope Redmond coders are faster than the hackers!

While the patch pickings are slim this month, it always pays to install whatever fixes Microsoft offers.
