Microsoft is releasing a full
dozen patches tomorrow, covering everything from Office to Access and nearly
all current versions of Windows (for some reason, Windows Me and DOS 6.0 don't
get any fixes).
While most patches cure that old bugaboo, the Remote Code Execution, no less
than three try to keep hackers from stealing information.
In two months, there will be a fairly
big change in how Microsoft discloses its flaws. Starting in September,
the company will give more detail on the severity of its flaws so you can decide
which patches to install first.
Is your patching under control, or still a pain in the neck? Complaints and
advice both welcome at [email protected].
