Alert: Microsoft Fixes 27 Vulnerabilities in Latest Round of Patches

Alert: Microsoft Fixes 27 Vulnerabilities in Latest Round of Patches

In the latest round of security patches released by Microsoft, 27 vulnerabilities were fixed. Affected software includes major titles like Windows, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, and the new Edge browser. It’s imperative that you apply these security patches as soon as you can, or else your system will be exposed to some serious threats.

If you have already applied the latest security patches, then you have nothing to worry about. Read on only to discover what kind of threats your quick thinking prevented. If, however, you have yet to apply the security patches, then you’ll want to pay attention to how your network is at risk.

Concerning the vulnerabilities with Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, and Edge, they are critical in nature and could be exploited remotely through web pages or Office documents, allowing hackers to execute malicious code. Read more about these patches on Microsoft’s security bulletin:

Patch for Microsoft Office: MS16-099
Patch for Internet Explorer: MS16-095
Patch for Edge: MS16-096

More critical vulnerabilities have been found affecting Windows, Microsoft Office, Skype, and Lync. These vulnerabilities have to do with the Windows Graphics Component, which allows hackers to execute remote code through malicious web pages and documents.

Patch for Windows, Microsoft Office, Skype, and Lync: MS16-097

Another security bulletin from Microsoft has to do with a critical remote code execution flaw in Windows PDF Library, which happens to be bundled with Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2. Also, the vulnerability affects Edge in a unique way, allowing attackers to exploit a malicious PDF document hosted on a website, and then trick users into loading the file via their Edge browser.

Patch for Windows PDF Library: MS16-102

Other patches have been flagged by Microsoft as “important” instead of “critical,” but this doesn’t mean they should be ignored.
