Microsoft had a large set of patches that it released in June (totaling 12) and they have another 7 patches this month. These patches will be released next Tuesday and four of the patches will be for Windows. The other three patches are going to be for Microsoft Office and sources expect two of those Office patches to be for Excel. A flaw was found in Excel just a few weeks ago that could allow a hacker to gain full control of a user’s system.
Of course I think that 7 patches is a lot but I can only imagine the number of patches flying out after Vista makes its way to store shelves in January. It will be a hacker’s paradise!
