Double-digit Patch Tuesday to target flaws in Windows, Office and Exchange

Computerworld - Microsoft today said it would deliver 11 security updates next week to patch 25 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office and Exchange.

"Big day next Tuesday," said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Network Security, of the patch news.

In its monthly advance notification, Microsoft spelled out next week's double-digit Patch Tuesday, which is entirely in line with company's pattern of alternating large- and small-sized updates, said Storms. "This fits with what we expected," he said, "a double-digit bulletin [Patch Tuesday] and double-digit CVEs."

The latter, for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures, is the identifying number each individual vulnerability receives when it's logged into the public CVE database. "We get this up-and-down from Microsoft now."

Monday, I image my system. On Tuesday, I look the updates over and install them one at a time.

I won't have to worry about imaging the drive since that will soon be wiped once moved into a new build as a secondary. That will provide a few weeks to see how things go with the latest on.

Sheesh...I hate these massive patch weeks. I run the WSUS system at my office and reading up on watching all of these patches to ensure they are safe for the corporate network takes up quite a bit of time. Guess I won't be bored this week.

The overwhelming majority of my work desktops are Vista and XP. Windows 7 is the minority as it stands now.

When first seeing the title here it sounded more like one update patching 25 security holes rather then numerous items to download. Just last month MS released a patch for 12 holes found in IE 8.

"The good news is that Microsoft is fixing two outstanding bugs," Storms continued.
Two is a lot less and more believable for 7 from just having run 7 since beta over a year now. The cross version part with 25 total is quite believable there especially with XP.

Auto updates! Never here!

The updates always include something already on being the latest for video, sound, and a tuner card where download and install of that means removing the application and tuner driver to start all over. The update always trashes a working installation on that!

I end up turning all automatic update options off since you can be running a full screen program and have a popup prompt for an update cut right in! That goes a little bit too far when seeing that!
