Microsoft's Vulnerabilities Hit the Ceiling

In the wake of increasing threats to its web browsers, and other services, Microsoft has issued what is called its largest security patch. The patch would aim to fix vulnerabilities amounting to as much as 64. The patch candidates include Microsoft’s Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, among others.

64 is just too high a number

These Microsoft products have been suspected and detected with several threats ranging from critical to other threat levels, equally worrying. Almost nine of the total 17 released bulletins were put in the ‘critical’ category. In most of these cases, the vulnerabilities had grown so significantly that it had become a child’s play for an attacker to wreak havoc into the computer it had gained control over.

This Patch Tuesday revelation has overtaken Microsoft’s previous vulnerability fixing that amounted to 40 vulnerabilities. Patch Tuesday is the second Tuesday of every month when Microsoft sits down to fixing vulnerabilities in its software.
