Massive Microsoft October Security Bulletin – The biggest ever
Although Microsoft are hitting the headlines with details of their new and exciting Windows Phone 7 offering in Australia, they are also hitting the news for other reasons…
Microsoft today released the largest number of Windows Updates – a whopping 49 in total, covering 16 security bulletins. This October 2010 security bulletin includes the greatest number of patches released in a single month, and beats last August’s huge patch release, which included 34 updates.
Patches include fixes for Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server R2, .Net, Media Player versions 9 to 11, and Internet Explorer versions 6 to 8.
Four of the bulletins are rated as critical. There’s also a fix (MS10-073) to plug an issue exploited by the Stuxnet worm, in addition to two fixes Microsoft delivered back in September (MS10-046 and MS10-061).
Time to update your windows machines!
