Patch Tuesday Leaves SharePoint Out

For September's Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released a total of four security patches, one of them for a "critical" issue and three for "important" issues.

The "critical" patch addressed a problem regarding the ability to execute code remotely on all versions of Windows. The "important" patches addressed Visual Studio, Windows Services for Unix, Subsystem for Unix-based applications, and MSN Messenger, Windows Live Messenger. These issues involved remote code execution and elevation of privilege.

In addition, Microsoft released one non-security, high-priority update on Microsoft Update (MU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). Microsoft announced that a planned update to its SharePoint collaboration software wouldn't be released this month.
