Microsoft Patch Tuesday

Admins will have their hands full applying updates in this month’s round of Patch Tuesday updates.

In its advance security notification, Microsoft released nine bulletins for this month’s security updates. Two of the updates are critical and seven are important.

Both critical bulletins address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Internet Explorer and Windows will be affected.

The seven important bulletins address remote code execution, elevation of privilege and security bypass feature vulnerabilities. Software in Microsoft Office and SharePoint will be affected, as will multiple versions of SQL Server, Windows and .NET Framework.

This round of Patch Tuesday updates includes one of the highest bulletin counts Windows Server admins have seen this year. Including this month’s upcoming security updates, 2014 has included 51 bulletins, down from last year’s 66 bulletins at the same time.
