Expect a Big Microsoft Patch Tuesday on February 12th

Microsoft is releasing 12 patches on Tuesday for a near record 57 vulnerabilities.  This release is only bested by the 64 vulnerabilities of April 2011.

Five of the patches are critical.  Two of those five are for Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.  One is for Exchange Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2010.  The other critical and important updates affect Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows RT.

I just witnessed a company have a very expensive and hurtful virus attack.  The whole drama could have been prevented with a structured patch update and anti-virus update program.  If you have questions or need help with managing and monitoring your updates give me a call or shoot and e-mail and I will help you out.  I can be reached at 949 428-5005 or Oli@Alvaka.net.
