Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday will be a big one, with 14 patches, eight of which address remote code execution holes.
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.
