MS14-014: Important

MS14-014 is an important rated bulletin for a security feature bypass in Silverlight for both Windows and Mac; there are no known active attacks at this time. Since this is a heterogeneous vulnerability, make sure your desktop team has their Macs in the update queue. Silverlight is no longer under development by Microsoft but the company has said they will support it through October 2021.

Microsoft released five updates for a total of 23 CVEs for the March Patch Tuesday. Two patches are rated critical and the remaining bulletins are rated Important. Russ Ernst, director, product management at Lumension, provides more information on this month's updates.
