Patch Tuesday Update

Microsoft Patch Tuesday is the second Tuesday of each month (Feb 11th this time), 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 an agreement between Microsoft and Adobe. This month, Adobe actually already released an out-of-band patch for their Flash Player to address a critical flaw. Microsoft has 5 "bulletins" this month, including two critical ones, although no updates are directed at Internet Explorer this time for a change. Update - two new critical patches are included, one for all versions of Internet Explorer (IE6 - IE11) and one for all versions of Windows. Following on a few flaky Windows Updates recently, you may even want to wait 24 or 48 hours to download them and install the patches - in case there are any serious problems with the updates.
