siliconreview Super Patch Tuesday: Microsoft and Adobe Releases Security Patches

Patch Tuesday is an unofficial term used by software companies when they release security patches for their products. And this week on Tuesday, two of the big players of technology, Microsoft and Adobe have released a larger than usual amount of security patches.

Microsoft

The latest security patch by the Redmond-based tech giant is fully focused on fixing a total number of 49 vulnerabilities, out of which 12 vulnerabilities are critical, 35 are important, one is moderate and one is low in severity. Also, three of these vulnerabilities that are being patched by Microsoft was “publicly known” at the time of release, and one flaw is reported as being actively exploited in the wild.

This monthly security update by the tech giant is going to address flaws in Microsoft Windows, Edge Browser, Internet Explorer, MS Office, MS Office Services and Web Apps, ChakraCore, SQL Server Management Studio, and Exchange Server.

Adobe

The San Jose-based software company, Adobe has also released a security update for the Patch Tuesday. The company with its patches is going to address a total number of 11 vulnerabilities in Adobe Digital Editions, Framemaker, and Technical Communications Suite. Out of the 11 vulnerabilities, four are tagged as critical and rest 7 is important in severity. Successful exploitation of the critical vulnerabilities of all the four vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to cause serious damage.

Unlike Microsoft, none of the vulnerabilities that were patched by Adobe were either publicly disclosed or found being actively exploited in the wild.
