Monster Patch Tuesday

Microsoft today dropped a monster Patch Tuesday release with fixes for at least 28 vulnerabilities affecting Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, Visual Basic Active Controls and Windows Media Player.

Of the 28 flaws, 23 carry a “critical” rating, meaning they could be used to launch remote code execution attacks with minimal user action. It is the largest patch batch from Redmond since the company implemented the Patch Tuesday schedule five years ago.

Most of the bulletins address client-side flaws that could be exploited via the browser or if a user opens a booby-trapped file.
