July Patch Tuesday Round-Up

Patch Tuesday + 8.  It was a large one this month.  Initially there were four Critical updates from Microsoft, but a fifth Critical released on July 20th as an out of band.  MS15-078 was discovered in the 400GBs of data from the Hacking Team breach.  The fact that the data was part of the breach means that CVE-2015-2426 has been publicly disclosed.  8 public disclosures and depending on how you score them, there are now 7 Zero Days in the lineup of updates this month.  Java is plugging one, Flash is plugging two, and Microsoft now as four (three already exploited and the fourth resolved by MS15-078).   See the summary of updates below for details.

This month there is one issue I know of that people will want to watch out for.  The IE update, MS15-065 is actually a series of 2-3 patches depending on your system.  The first needs to be applied before the other two can be.
