Even though it’s only 28 days long, February will still be a busy one for admins after Microsoft announced its most recent batch of fixes for this month’s Patch Tuesday.
The company released an advance security bulletin this week that includes 12 bulletins. Five bulletins are marked as critical and seven are marked as important.
All of February’s critical bulletins address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Windows Server and Internet Explorer, as well as Windows RT, are affected.
The seven important bulletins address denial of service and elevation of privilege vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Windows Server are affected.
This is the second month in a row Internet Explorer has received attention for vulnerabilities. Last month, an Internet Explorer zero-day exploit led Microsoft to post a workaround outside of the Patch Tuesday fixes, and later patch out-of-band.
