Shavlik Comments On October Patch Release

Shavlik Technologies : 11 October, 2010  (Technical Article)
Jason Miller of Shavlik Technologies provides a preview of the mammoth patch release scheduled from Microsoft to address 49 vulnerabilities
As expected, Microsoft is releasing a large amount of bulletins for the October Patch Tuesday. Typically, Microsoft follows a light month of patches with a heavy month of patches. Although, last month's 'light' patch month contained 9 new bulletins. Microsoft announced today they will be releasing a whopping 16 new security bulletins addressing a total of 49 new vulnerabilities. This month will be particularly challenging for administrators as most patch scenarios will hit every machine on a network.

In addition, administrators will want to look at patching the out-of-band bulletin released by Microsoft last week (MS10-070) and the Adobe critical release for Flash, Reader and Acrobat if they have not done so yet. More details to come Tuesday with the full bulletin detail announcement from Microsoft.
