Microsoft's September Updates
Well, it's that time of the month again, the time of the month that Microsoft prepares us for patch tuesday, and reboot Wednesday.

Well here they are:

Two Microsoft Security Bulletins (MSB) affecting Microsoft Windows.  The Highest Severity rating for these is "Important".

One MSB for Microsoft Office.  The Highest Severity rating for this one is "Critical".  (So let's hope is the new '0-day' in Word.)

They will also update their Software Removal Tool, nothing new there.

Also will be releasing Two NON-SECURITY High-Priority Updates for Windows on Windows Update (WU) and Software Update Services (SUS).

and finally they will release three NON-SECURITY High-Priority Updates on Microsoft Update (MU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

So overall, it looks like 9 updates, three of which are security related and are "Imporant" or higher.  Looks like a light month.  But still a nationwide reboot.

Read more about it from Microsoft here.
