Patch Tuesday To Include 25 Fixes

If you are responsible for patching at your shop, clear your schedule tomorrow cuz it's going to be a monster. Eleven patches will fix more than two dozen problems. Best tell the family you'll be late for dinner.

As usual, remote code execution fixes lead the charge, but denial of service, spoofing and elevation of privilege attacks also get their fair share of attention.

IE has had more patches lately than a pair of old hippy pants, but one IE flaw is not ready to be fixed just yet. A browser flaw that came out of the recent Pwn2Own contest may not be patched until May or later.

Are these vulnerabilities as bad as they seem or is Microsoft just being extra cautious? You tell me at [email protected].
