In the final Patch Tuesday for Windows XP and Office 2003, Microsoft released four patches today, two critical and two important, that cover a total of just 11 CVEs.

For that reason, this is an important Patch Tuesday for users who rely on the outdated platforms and applications that move to self-support this month. Here's a closer look at this month's patches, provided by Russ Ernst, director product management, Lumension.
