Microsoft yesterday released updates for Windows as part of the Patch Tuesday update roll out. With the latest Patch Tuesday update the company has made it a point to fix not less than 32 vulnerabilities found in different versions of Windows.

The company fixed 19 vulnerabilities which were rated as critical which included patches for Internet Explorer and Edge Vulnerabilities. The company confirmed that they are rolling out fixes for the 19 critical Internet Explorer and Edge vulnerabilities and has advised users to install the updates as soon as possible.

All Windows versions are currently affected with an RCE flaw which the company says gives administrator rights to the cybercriminals on the target system making it vulnerable for attacks.

The company says: “To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need to run a specially crafted application against an RPC server which has Routing and Remote Access enabled. Routing and Remote Access is a non-default configuration; systems without it enabled are not vulnerable.”

All Windows version 7, 8.1 and Windows 10 are affected by the vulnerability and hence the company advises to download and install the Patch Tuesday update at the earliest. Users and IT admins have been advised that the patch deployment would let your system reboot very often and hence any work is to be saved before beginning the installation of the updates.
