The upcoming Tuesday promises to be a busy one at the Internet Storm Center. Tuesday October 12th is the next Microsoft Patch Tuesday and it looks like a record number of bulletins. If my math is correct it looks like 16 bulletins covering 49 vulnerabilites.
Detailed information can be found in the advance notification bulletin.
As a brief summary:
- 12 updates for various Windows flavors, including 3 criticals
- 1 important update exclusive to Windows servers,
- 1 critical update for Internet Explorer
- 2 important updates for Microsoft Office
I suggest that those of you responsible for testing, and rolling out these updates get some sleep this weekend while you can!
A reader points out that Tuesday will also be the day that 81 Oracle patches are released.
