It’s September 2016 Patch Tuesday, and Microsoft has released 14 security bulletins that affect a host of components including desktop operating systems, servers, browsers , Exchange server, Silverlight, SMBv1 and several others. It’s a large update that will keep desktop as well as server administrators busy. Seven updates are rated as critical, while the other seven are rated as important. One 0-day vulnerability CVE-2016-3352 which was publicly disclosed earlier is also patched in the MS16-110 bulletin.
Today Microsoft released the bulletins for March Patch Tuesday. We have five bulletins, MS14-012 to MS14-016, a light patch tuesday by all comparisons, even with Adobe chiming in with an update that is non-critical. If it wasn’t for the Internet Explorer (IE) patch that addresses the 0-day that was found during last month’s Patch Tuesday, one could call it almost uneventful.
