Click through for a review of the critical patches expected this month, as identified by Paul Henry, security and forensic analyst at Lumension.

IT administrators may find they don’t have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving with a disruptive Patch Tuesday headed their way. With six Microsoft bulletins, four of which are critical and some restarts required, along with a host of other issues, IT can expect a disruptive Patch Tuesday this month.

According to Paul Henry, security and forensic analyst at Lumension, it’s disappointing to see the critical bulletins impacting more than just legacy code as we’ve come to expect in recent months. These bulletins impact many current generation products and that’s concerning. Nothing is ever 100 percent secure and mistakes are made in software. But it’s still ugly to see. In this slideshow, Henry outlines, in the order of severity, what you can expect this patch Tuesday.
