Patch Tuesday: 5 Critical, 4 Not

Patch Tuesday is coming up next week, and Microsoft Windows is in for a whole heap of fixin'. In fact, five of the nine bulletins are aimed at the OS and three of them labeled "critical."

Where some Patch Tuesdays are light, this one will be busy. Nine might not sound like a huge amount of patches, but there are lots of different kind of fixes and lots of reboots, experts caution.

As usual, remote code execution remedies lead the charge. Eight of the fixes are RCE related.
