October 2010 Patch Tuesday Will Come With Most Bulletins Ever

According to the Microsoft Security Response Center, Microsoft will issue 16 Security Bulletins addressing 49 vulnerabilities on Tuesday, October 12. It will also host a webcast to address customer questions the following day.

Four of the vulnerabilities are rated "Critical," 10 are marked "Important," and the last two are classified as "Moderate." All of the Critical vulnerabilities earned their rating through a remote code execution impact, meaning a hacker could potentially gain control of an infected machine. At least eight of the 16 patches will require a restart.

The list of affected operating systems includes Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. Microsoft Office XP, Office 2003, Office 2007, and Office 2010 are also being patched, as are the supported Mac versions: Office 2004 and Office 2008. Interestingly, Microsoft Office Web Apps is also included on the list; this is the first time we've seen it present.

Compared to last month's record Patch Tuesday, this one is massive. In fact, this is the highest number of bulletins Microsoft has ever released in one month, as well as the most vulnerabilities that are being fixed. The last record was just two months ago: 14 bulletins and 34 vulnerabilities.

You would have thought that as time goes on patches would get less often and smaller, but this seems not to be the case.  :gum:

In law, theres an axiom that says that for every loophole you close, 2 more are created.

Same probably applies here...
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
