Just Another Semi-Manic Patch Tuesday

Patch Tuesday is tomorrow, the thirteenth, but it's not so unlucky. Turns out there are only a half-dozen fixes en route (and only one is critical), so you can put away your defibrillator.

The critical flaw is yet another remote-code-execution problem, this time hitting XP, Vista, Win 7 and various iterations of Windows Server, from 2003 to 2008. Windows Server 8 hasn't shipped yet so it escapes this wrath.

And for the first time in my recent memory (which isn't saying much) Microsoft Expression Designer has an RCE hole. For all you hundreds of Expressions users, beware!
