Slim Patch Tuesday

Last month was a fat Patch Tuesday, with a record number of fixes keeping IT grunts busy. This month is far less onerous with only six tweaks on the way, most aimed at remote code execution exploits with a scoop of denial-of-service on top.

One critical fix is aimed at all versions of Windows with the sole exception of Windows 7. (Is this some kind of marketing ploy?)

While this month is not nearly as serious as the last, with any patch, it pays to be careful out there.
