"Microsoft on Tuesday rolled out 11 security updates that patch 17 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, Internet Information Server (IIS) and several other components and technologies. It was the most patch bulletins Microsoft’s has issued since February 2007, even though it yanked one expected update — scheduled last week to fix problems in VBScript and JScript — at the last minute. Five of the 11 were ranked "critical," Microsoft’s highest rating in its four-step threat-scoring system. The others were pegged as "important," the second-highest rating.
The sheer volume of flaws and fixes — added to the already large number of updates cranked out over the past two weeks by other vendors, including Apple and Adobe Systems — is what struck Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Network Security." – Content courtesy of PC World India: Microsoft Issues Biggest Patch Update in a Year
