Patch Tuesday Closes Critical Windows, Office and IE Holes
As expected, on Tuesday 10 April Microsoft released six security bulletins that address a total of 11 vulnerabilities in its products, eight of which are considered to be critical. Four of the bulletins address critical holes in all supported versions of Windows, Internet Explorer (IE), the .NET Framework, Office and SQL Server, as well as Microsoft Server and Developer tools. All of these bugs could be exploited by attackers to remotely inject and execute malicious code on a victim's system via a specially crafted file.
