Wednesday

Patch Tuesday Ahead

Microsoft Patch Tuesday is the second Tuesday of each month (May 14th), and is the scheduled release date for security updates affecting Windows and other Microsoft products. It is also the scheduled release day for security updates for Adobe products, through a mutual agreement between Microsoft and Adobe. Adobe also has several critical fixes this month. The forthcoming Microsoft updates features 7 fixes, including five critical ones (the most serious designation).  At this time, it's not clear if a recently acknowledged zero-day bug in IE8 will be part of this patch release. Update 5/10, this will be part of this update cycle. As always, please make sure Windows Updates is set to download and install patches automatically – or at the very least, to download them and notify you. See how here.
