Two for Patch Tuesday

Tomorrow may be the most relaxing Patch Tuesday ever, as it's a nearly patch-free Patch Tuesday. Only two fixes are currently on tap. One is for a flaw that can let a hacker gain super-user status on Windows 2000, XP or Vista. The other is for another remote execution exploit.

Don't ignore these two patches, but at least it shouldn't ruin your whole day!
