Microsoft has announced a major set of OS patches to go live for update tomorrow. The company announced 16 new security bulletin’s of which five have been flagged as critical and the OS’s covered range from IE6 and Windows Server 2003 SP2 on to IE11.
From The Register:
“The other critical bulletins address bugs in Windows itself, although just how severe the flaws are depends on which version of the OS you’re running. No version is completely safe, however – even the Windows 10 Technical Preview will need to be patched.
Four of the five critical bugs are said to allow remote code execution, while the last could allow an attacker to gain administrative privilege on a vulnerable machine. Several of the less-severe flaws allow privilege elevation, as well, while others allow attackers to bypass OS security features.”
