Patch Tuesday: Niner, Niner, Niner

It seems like every month, I write about Patch Tuesday. Maybe that's because it happens every month and patch information is critical for IT Pros.

This month is a bit middle-of-the-road, with a slightly above-average nine patches. The four critical fixes all revolve around remote code execution (RCE), a category that accounts for a vast array of attacks. RCE fixes are for the .NET Framework, Silverlight and Windows. Get all the deets here.

And of course, you know Microsoft loves you. Why else would it protect your computers on Valentine's Day?

Are you feeling the patch love? Does Microsoft do a good job fixing its holes? Answers, good and bad, welcome at [email protected]
