August Patch Tuesday Round-Up

Patch Tuesday + 8 days. Another big month from Microsoft, but it has continued past Patch Tuesday including a Zero Day IE update (MS15-093). Recapping the risks we have seen this month, there are now three exploited vulnerabilities from Microsoft for August. Two vulnerabilities have been publicly disclosed which increases the risk of exploit. Altogether, this is a busy month once again.

Windows 10 is continuing to be a hot topic. Some details have slowly been creeping out around how Microsoft really plans to roll-out updates on Windows 10. All updates will be cumulative. All updates will be bundled (August had six bulletins rolled into the single cumulative for Windows 10). These cumulative updates can include non-security fixes without notice or choice. We had the Patch Tuesday update and two additional cumulative since Patch Tuesday (KB3081436, KB3081438 which was the fix for the reboot loop, and KB3081444).

Here is the August summary:
