Microsoft this week, on what has become known as “Patch Tuesday” (the second Tuesday of every month), has issued seven security updates for the Windows operating system, classifying two of them as critical updates.
The two critical updates involve a cumulative update for Internet Explorer, and an update to the Windows Media Player, in which, according to Microsoft, “a vulnerability exists in the way that Windows Media Player processes certain files that could allow remote code execution.”
The five other updates involve “important” updates to Web Client Services, Windows Media Player, TCP/IP, the Korean Input Method Editor, and to PowerPoint 2000 (“A vulnerability exists PowerPoint that could allow information disclosure”).
