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.
