Patch-Free Tuesday

I wish that this could be a new tradition -- Patch-Free Tuesday.

That's right, patchers: Tomorrow you can take the day off as there are no patches on Patch Tuesday!

While that sounds great, the news is not 100 percent good. There is still an unresolved Word zero-day exploit that Microsoft is working on.

What are you going to do with your Patch-Free Tuesday? Let us know at [email protected].
