Microsoft Update Tuesday - March 2015 Updates

Microsoft Update Tuesday - formerly Patch Tuesday -  is the second Tuesday of each month (March 9th this month), and is the scheduled release date for security and other 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 14 "bulletins" (individual patch items) this time, five of them "critical", including one that fixes the "Stuxnet" bug (again).

My personal opinion - following some 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. I'm not suggesting you forgo critical updates, but you may avoid some headaches by waiting a couple of days to see if any serious issues are reported.
