Microsoft fixes critical Windows, IE flaws for Patch Tuesday
Microsoft has released four critical security updates for Windows and Internet Explorer, along with a bevy of other products, in order to protect against at least 19 vulnerabilities identified in its software.
On deck this month, there are four "critical" vulnerabilities that affect Windows, Internet Explorer, Office, and Windows Server, including one for Silverlight that affects both Windows and Mac machines.
Critical updates are reserved for security flaws that could compromise the security of a device or system data, while important updates are reserved for those that could lead to an increased scope of attack by malware or hackers, such as an elevation of user privileges to allow hackers to access system files under administrative reach.
