ZERO-DAY

This month, Microsoft delivers a big, complex series of updates to Windows, Azure and Edge. With 88 vulnerabilities addressed and four made public, we see “Patch Now” recommendations for both browsers, Windows and Adobe. I think that we should pay special attention to this month’s significant updates to ADO and JET.

Windows

This is a big, complex update that affects many of the core operating system components. If you have a reliance on JET/ADO, Hyper-V or specialist line of business applications that relay on core GDI services, then this updates needs application compatibility testing. Otherwise, add this large Windows update to your standard deployment effort.
