Microsoft announced their September 2010 patch day advanced notification yesterday.  They are planning on releasing 9 security bulletins that will address 11 vulnerabilities.  This month would typically mark a lower amount of security bulletins, but we are seeing quite a few this time.  In addition to these bulletins, you should look at addressing the non-Microsoft critical security bulletins released this week if you have not done so yet.

September Patch Tuesday Overview

  • 4 bulletins are rated as Critical
  • 5 bulletins are rated as Important
  • 7 vulnerabilities can lead to Remote Code Execution
  • 2 vulnerabilities can lead to Elevation of Privilege
  • All supported Windows operating systems are affected
  • Microsoft Office (Outlook) XP, 2003, and 2007
