Patch Tuesday: Fixing Critical Vulnerabilities

Another big rollout for Microsoft on Patch Tuesday this week with Microsoft releasing 16 updates across the board, nine of them deemed critical. It’s looking like a busy summer for systems administrators.

"All in all, this is a big update," said Wolfgang Kandek, CTO at Qualys. "And system administrators will need to plan closely as both workstations and servers are affected by the critical bulletins. In addition applications such as Excel, Adobe Reader and Java will have to be taken into account this month."
