Microsoft has released security updates for their operating systems and applications. The June 2010 patch day consists of 10 security bulletins that fix a total of
34 30 different security vulnerabilities.
The updates are already available via Windows Update but can also be downloaded from the Microsoft website in case they need to be deployed on computer systems without Internet connection.
The severity rating differs depending on the operating system and software version installed. Three security bulletins have a maximum security rating of critical, the most severe one, while the remaining seven are all rated as important.
Vulnerabilities affect various Windows operating systems from Windows 2000 to Windows 7, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Server and the Microsoft .net Framework.
It is advised to install the security patches immediately to protect the PC from exploits that are targeting unpatched computer systems. Additional information are provided by the Security Research & Defense team which offers additional information that are helpful for system administrators and advanced users.
