Bloated Patch Tuesday brings fix for nasty Word/RTF/Net vulnerability

Microsoft on Tuesday released 259 individual security patches, covering 82 security holes (counting by CVE number). You may feel rushed to apply those patches, particularly when you hear about a really bad vulnerability involving Word, RTF, and the .NET Framework. The facts are a little less alarmist.

Here’s a quick overview. The SANS Internet Storm Center has its usual handy list of CVEs and whether there are any known exploits. Martin Brinkmann at Ghacks stacks them up this way:

    Windows 7:  22 vulnerabilities of which three are rated critical, 19 important

    Windows 8.1: 26 vulnerabilities of which four are rated critical, 22 important
