MS14-022: Critical

Also a critical bulletin for this month is MS14-022. Sharepoint users will want to pay close attention as it impacts 2007, 2010, 2013 and Microsoft Web Apps, otherwise known as Office Online. This one is for three CVEs, none under public attack, and they do require social engineering aimed at your users to trigger.

Microsoft released eight bulletins this month – more than we’ve seen in the last few Patch Tuesdays, and the impact spans numerous software categories. The May patch load includes eight bulletins, two of which are rated critical, for a total of 13 CVEs. The busy Patch Tuesday comes on the heels of the out-of-band patch for IE, MS14-021, released by Microsoft May 1.

In this slideshow, Russ Ernst, director of product development at Lumension, takes a closer look at the patches for May and the systems they affect.
