Microsoft's February Patch Tuesday: three 0-days fixed
After a quiet January Patch Tuesday, Microsoft will be issuing 12 updates fixing 22 vulnerabilities for February's Patch Tuesday. These patches will update Windows, Internet Explorer, and the Visio diagramming software.
Three bulletins, including the Internet Explorer patch, earn the most severe "Critical" rating. The remaining nine, including the Visio fix, earn a still significant "Important" score. All bar three of the fixes will require a reboot.
Among the patches are fixes for three different vulnerabilities that have already been publicly disclosed: one in Internet Explorer, one in Windows, and one in Microsoft's IIS Web and FTP server. The Internet Explorer flaw is believed to be the CSS issue discovered by a Google researcher that led to a squabble between the software giant and the advertising company. This flaw is subject to limited attacks in the wild.
