    On July 11, Microsoft has once again rolled out a deluge of patches for Windows and other Microsoft products.

    Martin Brinkmann at ghacks.net provides the full list. Here’s the summary.

    • Windows 7:  22 vulnerabilities of which 2 are rated critical, 19 important, and 1 moderate
    • Windows 8.1: 24 vulnerabilities of which 2 are rated critical, 21 important, and 1 moderate
    • Windows RT 8.1: 21 vulnerabilities of which 2 are rated critical, and 21 important
    • Windows 10 version 1703: 27vulnerabilities of which 2 are rated critical, 23 important and 1 moderate
      Note: Windows 10 version 1507 will no longer receive security updates.

    Other products affected:

    • Internet Explorer 11: 7 vulnerabilities, 5 critical, 2  important
    • Microsoft Edge: 19 vulnerabilities, 15 critical, 3 important,  1 moderate
    • Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 2: 2 vulnerabilities, 2 important
    • Microsoft Office 2013 Service Pack 1: 1 vulnerabilities, 1 important
    • Microsoft Office 2016: 1 vulnerability, 1 important

    Good news: supposedly the IE11 browser crashes have been addressed.

    It’s back!! Watch out for KB2952664 (Win7) and KB2976978 (Win8.1) reissued 7/11 with a metadata change. You may get it again!!!!

    UPDATE: Security patches for Microsoft Office are now available. Considering last month’s fiasco, it’s probably an excellent idea to let the lemmings (er…Guinea Pigs) jump off the cliff first. Unless you desperately need patches to fix patches to fix patches….
    Office 2007 (5), Office 2010 (3), Office 2013 (9), and Office 2016 (14)

    UPDATE: .NET Security and Quality Rollup updates for July 2017 are available for Win10 only. The update addresses CVE-2017-0248.
