Microsoft has released the security patches for September 2009 which fix browser and web based attacks in various Microsoft programs and operating systems. All security patches have a critical or important security rating and are users who work with these software programs or operating systems should update them as soon as possible to protect their system from these attacks.
Microsoft has released two charts that show the severity and exploitable index and the deployment priority. The former interesting for all users while the latter probably only for network administrators.
The patches can be download and applied by visiting the pages that are linked above or by using any of the update options that are provided by Microsoft operating systems including Windows Update, Automatic Updates or Microsoft Updates. Additional information can be found at the Microsoft Technet page.
