According to “zdnet”, the bad news is that almost every major Microsoft product requires a patch to fix ongoing security vulnerabilities, including two patches that affect all versions of Windows.
For this month's so-called Patch Tuesday, the company has issued 12 bulletins fixing 56 separate vulnerabilities in some versions of Windows, Microsoft Office, and even the new Microsoft Edge browser
MS15-094 is the biggest patch of the monthly batch, affecting all supported versions of Windows, including the company's server and tablet operating system lineup. A number of memory corruption flaws in Internet Explorer could allow an attacker to gain access to an affected system.
MS15-098 is another major flaw, affecting all supported versions of Windows. A denial-of-service issue with how Windows Journal handles some carefully-crafted documents could allow an attacker to cause data loss on an affected system. The good news is that it can't allow an attacker to take over the machine.
MS15-097 is a critical elevation of privilege vulnerability affecting some versions of Windows and some versions of Microsoft Office.
Other patches, including MS15-096 and MS15-100 through MS15-105, are all rated "important," affecting Windows, Skype and Lync, and Exchange Server.
Sepetember's patches will be available through the usual update channels, like Windows Update.
