Microsoft fixes IE memory problems
Internet Explorer is getting major repairs, as Microsoft has issued 41 patches to fix memory vulnerabilities in its browser.
The Internet Explorer patches are part of the company’s monthly “Patch Tuesday” routine release of security and bug fixes for its software products. Microsoft Office and both the desktop and server editions of Windows are also getting fixes in this batch.
Overall, Microsoft issued patches to cover 56 different vulnerabilities, which are bundled into nine separate security bulletins.
Three of the bulletins are marked as critical, meaning they fix vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious attackers without user intervention. System administrators should tend to critical vulnerabilities as quickly as possible. These bulletins cover Internet Explorer, and both the server and desktop editions of Windows.
