    MS14-018: Critical

    MS14-018 is the now-expected cumulative update for Internet Explorer; it covers six CVEs but they were all privately reported and there are no known active attacks at this time.  It’s also rated critical and of course key for the many IE users out there.

    MS14-018: Critical

    MS14-018 is the now-expected cumulative update for Internet Explorer; it covers six CVEs but they were all privately reported and there are no known active attacks at this time.  It’s also rated critical and of course key for the many IE users out there.

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. While an unusually small Patch Tuesday, it isn’t surprising that Microsoft included final fixes in XP and Office 2003. For that reason, this is an important Patch Tuesday for users who rely on the outdated platforms and applications that move to self-support this month.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.
