Next November Patch Tuesday Addresses IE But Leaves Out Microsoft Word Vulnerability-7 Next

Last week, Microsoft released Security Advisory 2896666, a fix it for CVE-2013-3906, which is the graphics vulnerability, exploited through Word. This was not addressed in the November patches so, for anyone running XP with Windows 2007, the Security Advisory remains your go-to. Or, upgrade from Windows XP which you’ll need to do by the April end of life date anyway.

This November Patch Tuesday will be a busy one for IT, especially for the many organizations that use IE. Eight bulletins, three rated critical, were released by Microsoft. This slideshow features a rundown of the November updates, provided by Paul Henry, security and forensic expert at Lumension.
