IDG Contributor Network: Critical updates for Microsoft Office for Oct Patch Tuesday

This is an surprising Oct Patch Tuesday recover from Microsoft. Normally, we would see a series of obligatory vicious updates from Microsoft for severe, massively deleterious exploits in possibly Adobe Flash Player or several reduction vicious though still obligatory issues in both of Microsoft’s browsers. This month is different. No Adobe Flash Player updates. we repeat, no Flash updates. And no obligatory browser updates, either.

For this Oct Patch Tuesday, Microsoft Office has a highest, many vicious rating with a publicly reported and already exploited disadvantage in a Word automation component. In addition, Microsoft has expelled a series of confidence advisories for Windows 10. The many vicious (ADV170012) relates to “a confidence disadvantage [which] exists in certain Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chipsets.” With a comparatively high CVSS measure of 7.3, this firmware refurbish requires some attention. You can also find a useful infographic from Chris Goettl’s blog here.

This month’s patches, advisories and updates from Microsoft impact a following technologies and platforms:

  • Windows 10
  • Microsoft .NET
  • Microsoft Office and Skype
  • Microsoft Browsers (IE11 and Edge)

If we are regulating Windows 10 Release 1511, afterwards this is the final month that we will accept confidence updates and patches. Now might be a good time to refurbish to a Fall Creators release, or during slightest pierce onto a Windows 10 1703 branch.
