Microsoft Patch Tuesday Shows Secure Coding Pays Off
Security researcher Paul Henry said it was great to see Microsoft’s Secure Coding Initiative paying off, reducing the number of vulnerabilities in its software, resulting in an easier time for IT at Patch Tuesday time. Over the year, Microsoft Patch Tuesday released 35 critical security bulletins, 46 important bulletins and two moderate bulletins.
Microsoft Relevant Products/Services’s last Patch Tuesday of 2012 rolled out seven patches. Five of them are rated critical and two are rated important. The good news is: none are under active attack.
