The biggest patch is Bulletin 3, rated critical, addressing remote code execution vulnerabilities in all versions of Internet Explorer from IE 6 on Windows XP to IE 10 on Windows 8, including Windows 8 RT. This patch requires a reboot.

In addition to remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities, the patches also address privilege elevation and denial of service flaws.
