  • Leaked forewarning of next Patch Tuesday’s content

    Y’all know that Microsoft releases advance warnings about upcoming Patch Tuesday security patches, right? In order to see the warnings, you just have to work for a company that spends enough money on Microsoft products. And sign an NDA, of course.

    Brian Krebs just tweeted:

    Microsoft is expected to patch a dozen remote code execution vulnerabilities next week (Patch Tuesday), 10 of which are critical. And, of course, there will be a Flash update.

    Sounds like we’re in for a rocky ride.

    I’m trying to put together some thoughts for installing March’s patches right now. Look for a change in MS-DEFCON level later today.
