Patch Tuesday brings some surprises, some early crashes, and a surreal solution

With all of a problems in a January, February and March patches for Windows and Office, you’d consider we would locate a mangle in April. In one clarity we did — some of a misfortune bugs in a progressing rags now seem to be behind us. But we’re really not out of a woods usually yet.

Patch Tuesday by a numbers

Tuesday, Microsoft expelled 177 separate patches covering 66 confidence holes (CVEs), 24 of that are rated “critical.” The SANS Internet Storm Center says that usually one of a patches, CVE 2018-1034, covers a confidence hole that’s been documented, and it isn’t being exploited.

Further details, compliments of Martin Brinkman on ghacks:

  • Win7: 21 vulnerabilities, 6 rated critical
  • Win8.1: 23 vulnerabilities, 6 rated critical
  • Win10 chronicle 1607: 25 vulnerabilities, 6 critical. (Note that this is a final designed confidence refurbish for Win10 1607.)
  • Win10 chronicle 1703: 28 vulnerabilities, 6 critical
  • Win10 chronicle 1709: 28 vulnerabilities, 6 critical
  • Server 2008 R2: 21 vulnerabilities, 6 critical
  • Server 2012 and 2012 R2: 23 vulnerabilities, 6 critical
  • Server 2016: 27 vulnerabilities, 6 critical
  • IE 11: 13 vulnerabilities, 8 critical
  • Edge: 10 vulnerabilities, 8 critical

As Dustin Childs records on the Zero Day Initiative site, 5 of a vicious bugs are variations on an old, sleepy theme: a “bad” rise can take over your machine, if you’re using in admin mode. And it doesn’t matter where a rise appears — on a web page, in a document, in an email. Don’t we usually adore it when fonts get rendered inside a Windows kernel?
