January was a nice light month for patches -- just the thing for IT pros to get over their holiday breaks (all that eating, drinking and socializing can really take a toll).

IE gets a long-awaited patch for a CSS flaw. This is needed because various attacks have already been spotted in the wild.
Last week I reported on an IE flaw related to MHTML. This probably won't be repaired tomorrow, but apparently these MHTML attacks are tough to execute.
The Windows family also gains two critical fixes, and the patches apply to most current versions of the operating system.
