It’s that time again, and Microsoft have really gone to town this week with ‘9 security bulletins to patch 56 unique vulnerabilities’in Windows, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Server software. Of the nine security bulletins, three are rated Critical in severity, and among these three is one that addresses a years-old design flaw that can be exploited remotely to grant attackers administrator-level access to the targeted machine of device.
Additionally, it has been reported that KB3001652 has had issues for some users due to a perceived bug – causing system lock-ups during install. This has now been removed from the update.
