What's more painful than a regular patch Tuesday? A patch Tuesday with vital updates from Microsoft, Oracle and Adobe.

As Naked Security notes, Microsoft's regular monthly update (with 9 included this time around) happens to coincide with both Oracle's quarterly update (which includes 22 patches for Java alone) and Adobe (which as usual is trying to plug holes in Acrobat and Flash). Any site running all three of those technologies will be looking at long update and patch cycles this week.
That's not an excuse to ignoring patching — once vulnerabilities are public, anyone who doesn't patch is more likely to be attacked. But do stock up on the coffee.
