Black Tuesday, Reboot Wednesday, , "lets all distribute patches and vulnerability information Thursday".  We might need to come up with a shorter name. 

We often get links sent to us when vendors release new patches etc.  We don;t publish all of them and typically we let you know about the more important ones.  However this month there just seems to be a swag of patches from a range of vendors.

Microsoft had their usual bunch of patches, Adobe had two which have already been mentioned.  So here are some of the others:



iDefense released information on full disclosure and bugtrack (read more here)

Others mentioned today (so far)  CLAM AV, Open office, more on Java, more on tipping point evasion, quicktime (thanks Chris).  We'll also add Symantec and itunes, Juniper  and no doubt more.

In short it is a patchy kind of day, I'd be checking my list of core software and checking to see if I'm on the relevant notification list.  I'll also be checking if there are any non MSFT or Adobe patches I need to apply.
