Patch Tuesday arrived, after a delay of a month thanks to a SMB bug which was announced just prior to our scheduled day of updating. That particular SMB issue was patched by a third party and today you can get it directly from Microsoft if you decided to live dangerously during the shortest month of the year. The list of fixes include the traditional Adobe Flash patch as well as numerous others which you should really get around to installing before the podcast tonight. The Register were kind enough to provide links and a summary of what each patch is intended to repair, you can read about them all here.
"These flaws range from a hypervisor escape in Hyper-V, remote-code execution via PDF and Office files and malicious SMB traffic, to the usual barrage of information leaks and privilege escalations."
