All the updates were released in accordance with their patch Tuesday program. The company released a total of about nineteen updates with its latest Patch Tuesday updates. The major update among the lot is the fixing of the watering hole issue that was related with the Internet Explorer web browser. This issue was for long made use of by hackers for gaining access to Windows computers.

However, with the patch Tuesday set of updates, hackers will have to find a new way to enter Windows computers now. The watering hole issue found by the security firm FireEye was listed as one of the most dangerous issues and threats that Windows faced due to its defense-dodging powers. The company also released a plethora of fixes for fixing the Outlook problems that were found with the email manager program. Of these fixes, patches released for fixing the technical issues in Windows Schannel.dll and Hyper-V Server are the major advancements made by Microsoft.

Tyler Reguly of Tripwire stated about the Outlook problems and other vulnerabilities and the patches Microsoft released to the market for fixing it in their blog post saying, “The more interesting patches this month are for a unique Outlook vulnerability that

could allow port-scanning, a Hyper-V vulnerability that could allow Guest operating system code execution, and an X.509 issue in Schannel.dll that could allow denial of service. Also patched this month is [Windows] Graphics Device Interface (GDI), and while the bulletin wouldn’t normally merit a critical rating, the vulnerability exists in a common application programming interface (API) call that may be implemented by numerous third-party products.”

However, the company did elude some of the much-needed patches. One example was the patch needed for fixing the zero-day vulnerability in Microsoft Office, which was recently discovered. May be the technicians did not get enough time for creating a patch for it as the vulnerability was found only recently. We can hope that a new patch comes in the near future for fixing the issues with the program.

However, when one considers the fact that the company has announced the vulnerability in the Office program but has not fixed the issue yet, some of the users may feel frustrated. Nevertheless, there is no need to be worried as a patch for fixing the issue is expected to arrive soon.
