Massive Patch Action

Every Patch Tuesday is different. Some are light, and sometimes we need more plugging than a BP oil rig. Tomorrow is more like the Deep Water Horizon -- with a whopping 10 patches. The only difference? Microsoft plugs almost always work.

This Tuesday there will be an even 10 patches -- most of which , predictably, involve remote execution exploits.

The big culprits this time around include Windows, including the arguably more secure Win 7, as well as Office. IE, from version 5 all the way up to IE 8, got fixes.

SharePoint also gains an important patch.

With 10 patches, it's time to crank up the coffee pot, especially now that Jolt Cola is off the market.
