Patching Time Again

Last month you had it easy with barely any big patches on Patch Tuesday. Tomorrow Microsoft is catching up with no less than 5 "critical" security bulletins. Overall Redmond is fixing 11 holes in everything from Windows and Office to Exchange and IE.

The vast majority of patches, as is now rote, is for remote code execution (RCE), and IE is the biggest target. Experts advise fixing the browser first since it is the easiest vector for attack.
