For November’s Patch Tuesday, admins can give thanks for security with the upcoming fixes from Microsoft.

In its advanced security notice, the company said it would have eight total bulletins in its latest batch of updates, three of which are critical.

The three critical bulletins will address remote code execution vulnerabilities in multiple versions of Windows Server and Internet Explorer. The five important bulletins will address remote code execution, denial of service and information disclosure vulnerabilities in multiple versions of Windows and Microsoft Office.

Last month marked the tenth anniversary of Patch Tuesday. The month’s bulletins brought the yearly bulletin total up to 87, a significant increase from 70 bulletins at the same point last year.
