Patches Galore, Even Visual Studio Gets One

As we mentioned Monday, Patch Tuesday is this week. If you haven't started plugging the latest holes, you're a day late, so get to steppin'. There is a flaw in Visual Studio 2005 that lets hackers take over your machines, but it takes a lot of effort to build the exploit.

IE 5 and 6 got patched, so all you pioneers that have IE 7 (or Firefox) needn't worry. Get full details here.
