In its Patch Tuesday release yesterday, Microsoft published 18 bulletins with nine "critical" vulnerability fixes and nine "important" bulletins. The fixes, available over Windows Update, include a critical flaw in which exploit code was disclosed publicly early February, but its patch release was delayed by a month, according to a ZDNet report.
The Windows SMB bug, discovered last year by Laurent Gaffié, involved a memory corruption bug that impacts all versions of Windows in varying degrees.
The other fixes published in yesterday’s release include two updates for Internet Explorer and its Edge browser. This month's Patch Tuesday comes after the February release was delayed, reportedly due to problems with Microsoft's build system.
