Zero-day IE fix stars in last Patch Tuesday of the decade
Critical Office and Win updates also lined up
Microsoft is lining up a fix for a zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer as part of the decade's last ever Patch Tuesday update.
Tuesday is due to bring six bulletins, three of which are critical. The critical fixes address flaws in Windows and Office as well as IE. The Office update covers flaws in Project, Word and Works 8.5.
Only systems running Windows Server 2008 R2 duck the crucial flaws. All other supported operating systems - including Vista and Windows 7 - will need patching against double plus bad vulnerabilities.
The Noughties' last edition of Patch Tuesday covers 12 vulnerabilities in total across six bulletins. Windows systems will need to be rebooted after patches are applied, as explained in a post on Microsoft Security Response blog.

Re: Last patch Tuesday of the decade?
"Remember that we have no year 0 in the Gregorian Calendar system"
Remember that the choice of epoch is arbitrary. Mine started at zero. Kindly fuck off back to 1999 where you came from.
Last patch Tuesday of the decade?
I think not - 2010 is the last year of the decade, not 2009. 1 Jan 2011 is the first day of the next decade.
Remember that we have no year 0 in the Gregorian Calendar system - so years ending in 1 will the first year of any decade/century (delete as appropriate).
So the last patch Tuesday of this decade will be 7 Dec 2010.
