Microsoft fixes yet more bugs

As eagerly anticipated, Microsoft released yet another a bunch of fixes on a few days ago, three of which were rated critical. It is widely reported that problems with the patch files originally made available from some download locations may have interfered with the update process, although we understand everything is working fine now. Nevertheless, Microsoft customers are well advised to double-check that all necessary patches have been applied to all relevant systems using Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), Microsoft Update (which updates both Windows and Office) or other patching utilities. There are rumors of exploit code already in circulation for the announced vulnerabilities so consider the risks carefully if you are not certain that all your systems are fully patched.
