Microsoft and Adobe to address Critical Vulnerabilities on Patch Tuesday
The Tuesday after the Easter weekend, 10 April, is set to be a busy one for system administrators as Microsoft and Adobe have sent out notifications that they will both be issuing fixes for critical vulnerabilities in their products. Microsoft's April notification says there will be four critical advisories concerning Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, .NET Framework, Office, SQL Server, Microsoft Server and Developer tools, which all lead to remote code execution.
Adobe's prenotification advisory says that high priority fixes for Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat 9.5 and earlier 9.x versions for Windows will be released on 10 April.
