Lumension Comments On Forthcoming Heavy Patch Tuesday

Lumension Security : 11 October, 2010  (Technical Article)
With 16 security bulletins expected from Microsoft this week, IT Administrators will have a heavy workload ahead of them according to Lumension
Administrators have their hands full this week with a hefty patch-Tuesday ahead, commented Paul Henry, Forensics and Security Analyst at Lumension:

"It's all trick no treat for network administrators this Halloween as Microsoft released 16 security bulletins addressing 49 vulnerabilities - four of which are critical, ten are rated important and all include a restart.

"One of the largest patch loads we've seen this year is coming on the heels of recommendations from Microsoft around out-of-band patches, as well as Adobe's huge announcement earlier this week encouraging users to quarantine 25 vulnerabilities in Reader and Acrobat.

"While administrators will have their hands full this week since Microsoft came out with an announcement recommending quarantining machines, it is also important to remember that it is always better to prevent infection than to have to clean it up afterwards. Lumension recommends taking a proactive approach to patching, combined with a complimentary whitelisting solution."
