Patch Tuesday Pre-release -- 16 updates

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 14 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!
