Microsoft has released six security bulletins today as part of their monthly Tuesday patch day. The six bulletins fix a total of 15 security vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows.
The maximum severity rating of the bulletins includes three critical and three important ratings. Vulnerabilities may be exploited for remote code execution and denial of service attacks.
Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office users are encouraged to update their computer systems as soon as possible to protect the PCs from possible exploits that could attack the systems successfully.
The usual options to download the patches are provided including automatic updates, Windows updates, Microsoft update or manually by following the links posted in the different security bulletins.
Detailed information are available in the security bulletins linked above or at the security bulletin summary page here.
