Microsoft goes out with a bang

Microsoft’s last patch for the year is a biggie – it is addressing no less than 28 security vulnerabilities.

Released yesterday, this patch solves the following issues:

• Six security holes in the ActiveX controls for Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0's Runtime Extended Files, all of which could allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious website.
• Four memory-corruption issues in Internet Explorer
• Two other fixes addressed a total of 11 vulnerabilities in Microsoft Word and Excel
• Fixes for security issues in Microsoft's graphics library, Windows' search functionality, Windows Media Components and a vulnerability in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server.

More info is available here.

Make sure you download your updates!
