A short analysis of the latest released patches and the security trend.
Instead of six, Microsoft has released seven security updates as a part of its monthly patch cycle, popularly called as Patch Tuesday. Out of the seven, three have been given the highest rating, critical and 4 are rated as Important. Here I provide my analysis and recommendation.
Microsoft started the year slowly with only four security updates for its line of products. Initially Microsoft had announced that it will release 8 security updates but quickly released an update withdrawing four of the security updates.
After a slow start to the year by releasing just four updates in January 2007, Microsoft warmed up for the year by releasing 12 security updates for its line of products. This month's update cycle also includes updates for some long disclosed vulnerabilities like the MS-Word and Visual studio 2005 vulnerability.
