Emergency Patches Next Tuesday

by Lee

Microsoft will issue out-of-band security patches next tuesday according to various tech sites. This is the third time in 25 months that the company has made this kind of action.

The patches will fix Internet Explorer and Visual Studio. The patch for IE is rated is critical while the other is rated as important. “While this release is to address a single, overall issue, in order to provide the broadest protections possible to customers, we’ll be releasing two separate security bulletins,” said a spokesperson of Microsoft.

Both patches need computers to be rebooted after intalling them.

    Personally, I’m glad Microsoft keeps up on security updates. So does my Ubuntu system as it seems there’s a patch every week, but still good to have them up-to-date.
