Microsoft Patch Tuesday - More Of The Same

Microsoft Patch Tuesday is the second Tuesday of each month (October 8th this time around), 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 has a critical patch this month for Acrobat and Acrobat Reader. Microsoft has 4 critical items again this month (the most serious designation), including one for Internet Explorer. Browser vulnerabilities are particularly important, as they are the primary method of infection in most cases. Following on a few flaky Windows Updates recently, you may want to wait 24 or 48 hours to download them and install the patches - in case there are any serious problems with the updates.
