Busy Patch Tuesday looms

11 updates, some critical

Top three mobile application threats

October's Patch Tuesday, Microsoft's monthly security update, will see the release of 11 security updates, some of which are critical.

Six of the bulletins deal with flaws in Windows (at least one, and possibly more, one of which is critical), four deal with flaws in Microsoft Office (again with at least one critical update). There's also a patch for Microsoft's .NET framework, but this one is less of a problem since it's rated only as "moderate". Redmond is also updating the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Hopefully, the patches will address software bugs that are currently the subject of active exploitation by hackers, such as a recently discovered flaw in WebViewFolderIcon ActiveX control.
