Windows 7: December 2010 Patch Tuesday will come with most bulletins ever

December 2010 Patch Tuesday will come with most bulletins ever

Quote:

According to the Microsoft Security Response Center, Microsoft will issue 17 Security Bulletins addressing 40 vulnerabilities on Tuesday, December 14. It will also host a webcast to address customer questions the following day.

Two of the vulnerabilities are rated "Critical," 14 are marked "Important," and the last one is classified as "Moderate." All of the Critical vulnerabilities earned their rating through a remote code execution impact, meaning a hacker could potentially gain control of an infected machine. At least eight of the 17 patches will require a restart.

The list of affected operating systems includes Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. Microsoft Office XP, Office 2003, Office 2007, and Office 2010 are also being patched, but no Mac versions are.

Compared to last month's record Patch Tuesday, this one is massive. In fact, this is the highest number of bulletins Microsoft has ever released in one month. Still, it's lower than the record number of vulnerabilities that are being patched. The last record was set two months ago: 16 bulletins and 49 vulnerabilities fixed.

Thanx for the heads up.

As usual, I'll wait a couple days to see if any of them cause any problems.

I've gotten into the habit of doing this since a couple of the XP & Vista updates had "unfortunate side effects". It doesn't happen too often anymore, but still...

I don't get it. I do not see this as Massive.

MS have a lot of products. Blowing things out of proportion in relation to the number of products supported and calling it massive is, in my opinion. BS.

Well you can always leave the systems unpatched. That'll give you plenty to focus on




Just kidding

It's pretty big. For somebody like me who manages a WSUS server for my office, some months (like October) took quite a number of hours/days to go over, while easy months like November were done in very short order. Unfortunately, it appears that I am going to have a busy time reviewing patches for the month of December.
