Microsoft to patch 19 vulnerabilities on Tuesday
Microsoft is prepping six patches that will rectify 19 vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Office and the .NET Framework.
Four of the six fixes, set to arrive on Tuesday as part of the software giant's monthly security update, are rated "critical," according to an advance notification.
Researchers said that of all of the patches, the one that should garner the most attention involves issues in Internet Explorer. Bugs of this nature are quite easy for cyber crooks to exploit thanks to drive-by and targeted-style attacks, which only require directing unwitting users to a malicious web page.
