Stretch those network pipes, because on Tuesday, a big workout is coming. That's when Microsoft's monthly "Patch Tuesday" hits, and this is one particular roll-out where the word "mammoth" definitely fits. In total, there are 57 flaws to be patched, 12 of which are either considered to be "Critical" or "Important".
On account of some of the fixes, Internet Explorer users should be on high-alert and waste no time in updating, because a bulk of these important fixes are directly related to five versions of the browser, ranging from 6 - 10. The bugs are related to remote code execution, which means simply running the browser or visiting a page that has code designed to trigger them could result in someone being able to execute code on your machine for whatever purpose they deem fit.
In addition to these IE updates, other software products involved in the most important of updates include .NET, Office, Server and Windows itself. Given the size and importance of this entire roll-out, we'd recommend updating as soon as Patch Tuesday gets here, at around 11:00AM PST.
