Critical IE, Windows Server fixes coming for October Patch Tuesday

Microsoft will treat admins with security updates to prevent malicious tricks for October’s Patch Tuesday. Unfortunately, admins will be on their own for Halloween candy.

In its advance security notification, the company said admins should expect security updates in eight bulletins this month. Four of the bulletins will be critical and four will be important.

This month’s critical bulletins address remote code execution vulnerabilities in multiples versions of Internet Explorer, Windows Server and .NET Framework. October’s important bulletins address remote code execution and information disclosure vulnerabilities in Microsoft Silverlight and multiple versions of Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint and Windows Server.

There’s a noticeable decrease in this month’s security updates. September’s Patch Tuesday updates included 13 bulletins with critical fixes for Microsoft Outlook, Office and IE.
