This month’s Patch Tuesday aligns with Januarys of past … issuing a low number of Microsoft patches and giving IT a reprieve to start the year. We have just four new bulletins this month covering six CVEs. None of the bulletins are rated critical and only one bulletin was known to have active exploits prior to today’s release. According to Russ Ernst, director, product management, Lumension, after you deploy the few needed patches this month, you likely will need to turn your attention to Adobe as well as Oracle’s quarterly security updates, however. They announced that they will release 144 new security vulnerability fixes for hundreds of products.
