Light Start to 2014 Patch Tuesday, from Microsoft Anyway

  • Light Start to 2014 Patch Tuesday, from Microsoft Anyway-

    MS13-081 - Rereleased

    In addition to the four patches, Microsoft has also re-released MS13-081. There were stability issues in some cases with third-party USB drivers, so Ernst recommends reinstalling the update to ensure you have the latest version of that patch. They have also released Security Advisory 2755801 for updates to vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player for IE.

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.
