Patch Tuesday Already?

I feel like apologizing every time I write about Patch Tuesday, which is exactly 12 times a year.

The reason I'm so sheepish is that every story is nearly the same, describing remote execution exploits, Internet Explorer holes...you get the picture. But like covering every nuance of the Iraq war or the fight for the Democratic nomination, it's painful, boring and necessary. At least I'll try to keep it short.

Tomorrow is a relatively busy day, with eight fixes. Again, IE, Office and, of course, Windows are the main victims. Surprisingly, Microsoft Project also gets a little plug. Also unusual are the fixes for JScript and VBScript. Web developers take heed!
