Microsoft Issues Biggest Patch Update in a Year

February 12, 2008 (Computerworld) Microsoft Corp. today 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 Inc. and Adobe Systems Inc. -- is what struck Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Network Security Inc.

"The volume of the last week is something no security team can staff for," said Storms, referring to a wave of vulnerability disclosures and patches by developers of some of the Web's most popular applications, including Adobe Reader, Apple's QuickTime and Skype Ltd.'s flagship VoIP client. All have been plagued with, and patched, one or more bugs in the past week.
