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.

These reported issues are more difficult to exploit, and with no critical updates this month, we recommend that you “Schedule” this update as part of your standard deployment effort.
