Microsoft Update Tuesday - January 2016

Microsoft Update Tuesday - formerly Patch Tuesday - is the second Tuesday of each month (January 12th 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.

An unusual situation this time around in that this update also signifies the end of security updates for Windows 8 and Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and 10.

The Microsoft updates themselves include 6 critical items.
