For the first time since its release in September, Windows Server 2012 will receive critical patches during this month’s Patch Tuesday.

According to an advance security bulletin released this week, November’s Patch Tuesday has a total of six bulletins. Four of this month’s bulletins are marked at critical with one important bulletin and one moderate bulletin.

The critical bulletins, including the bulletins for Windows Server 2012, and the important bulletin address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Admins currently running Windows Server 2012 will keep an eye out for those critical patches.

The critical bulletins and the moderate bulletin affect older server and desktop versions as well as service packs for them.

The important bulletin affects Windows RT and service packs for multiple versions of Microsoft Office.

Internet Explorer is also named in one of the month’s critical bulletins. This is no surprise since critical vulnerabilities affecting the popular web browser have continued to be patched throughout this year. However, it is the first new patch for IE since August.

What do you think of this month’s patches? Let us know in the comments on this post, or on Twitter @SearchWinServ.
