Computerworld News reports Microsoft releases patches for 18 separate flaws. “Microsoft today released eight security bulletins detailing fixes for 18 separate vulnerabilities affecting a wide range of its software products.”
Youch! Patch quick, patch often. This RSS Feed (readable in a browser) points out updates for Exchange Server, MSN Messenger, Windows, and Office (Word 2000, 2002, 2003, Works – a Critical Update). You’ll also want to review http://www.microsoft.com/security. Regularly.
The security bulletins seem to be numbered MS05-016 through -023. It’s only week 16 of 2005. Looks like it could be a rough year for Microsoft.
