Microsoft Update Tuesday August 2014 - Critical Updates

Microsoft Update Tuesday - formerly Patch Tuesday -  is the second Tuesday of each month (August 12th 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 an agreement between Microsoft and Adobe. Microsoft has 2 critical items in this month's crop of updates, including one for all versions of Internet Explorer. Also, there will be no previously announced Windows 8.1 update 2 - instead updates for that operating system will be dribbled out as part of future Update Tuesdays.

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. See how to configure Windows Updates here.
