Adobe

Aside from the Microsoft security updates, IT should give some extra attention this month to application updates outside of Microsoft. Adobe released an emergency fix last week to patch vulnerabilities in the Flash Player plug-in for IE and other browsers. These vulnerabilities are under active attack and, given the widespread use of Flash, this will create a cascading effect for companies as they apply updates for their Firefox and Google Chrome users.

Microsoft was looking to deliver a light Patch Tuesday this month, but added two last-minute bulletins to the mix. February now includes seven bulletins, four critical and three important, that cover a total of 32 CVEs. The patches address vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Security Software and the .NET framework. Russ Ernst, director of product management at Lumension, takes a closer look at this February's Patch Tuesday.
