Patch Tuesday Wednesday (Sep-2014)

patch-tuesday Due to a backlog I’m a bit late with this months analysis; this month Microsoft have released four (4) security bulletins of which one (1) has a maximum rating of Critical and three (3) have a maximum rating of Important. Get MS14-052 patched as soon as possible.

❝ Today, as a part of our regular Update Tuesday process, we released four security bulletins – one rated Critical and three rated Important in severity – to address 42 Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVEs) in Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, .NET Framework, and Lync Server. We encourage you to apply all of these updates, but for those who need to prioritize, we recommend focusing on the Critical update first. ❞ [1]
