Patch --Times 15

If you or your staff aren't yet patching, you best get to steppin'. This month, Microsoft released 15 patches, including one out-of-band patch that isn't technically part of Patch Tuesday.

Sorry to sound like an old record, but the vast majority of fixes address remote execution flaws (you know, where a dirtbag hacker tries to hijack your machine).

Word from the experts is that implementing all these fixes will take some time and care -- especially as all these patches demand a system restart.

If you want all the deets, I suggest you go here.
