Microsoft released security patches yesterday for Windows and Office products on the monthly Patch Tuesday which is always on the second Tuesday of each month.
A total of three security bulletins have been released by Microsoft that patch flaws in Microsoft Excel, Windows Movie Maker and Microsoft Producer 2003.
The severity of both security bulletins has been rated as important which means that at least one program has received the severity rating while others may have received the same, a lesser one or none at all. Attackers can exploit the issues for remote code execution.
The security updates are offered through the usual channels including Windows Update, Microsoft Update or directly from Microsoft's Download Center website.
Users who have Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Producer 2003 or Windows Movie Maker installed should install the security patches right away to protect their computer system from exploits that target those vulnerabilities.
