Microsoft dropping record number of bulletins on "Patch Tuesday"

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:45PM EST

This coming Tuesday — August 10 — Microsoft will release a company record fourteen security bulletins to plug thirty-four vulnerabilities. Angela Gunn, a member of Microsoft’s Response Communications team, wrote: “For those who keep track of such things, this will be the most bulletins we have ever released in a month; we have released 13 bulletins on a couple of occasions. However, in total CVE count, this release ties with June 2010, so there’s no new record there.” Of the fourteen bulletins, eight are listed as critical and six are rated as important. Make sure to run your Windows Updates next Tuesday to get all the goodies.
