Little Excitement for Patch Tuesday

Microsoft released just two patches today -- one rated critical and one important -- compared to the half-dozen or more we typically see every month. The critical fix addresses remote code execution in Windows, while the important patch deals with a spoofing issue, also in Windows. A previous patch was also re-released.

Are you breathing a sigh of relief at the light patch load this month, or are other Windows-related issues causing you heartburn? Communicate your antacid intake to me at pvarhol@redmondmag.com.
