Why the Latest Windows 10 Security Update May be the Most Important Patch Yet

This week Microsoft has rolled out a bunch of new updates for Windows 10 that fix many of the flaws that users and security experts have identified already with the latest version of the operating system.

According to KrebsonSecurity, five of the new patches have been released to address issues that could compromise devices with no help from users. And another five address issues that have already been publicly disclosed. Among these security updates is a big Internet Explorer fix that corrects a number of flaws, as well as one that addresses some ongoing issues with Microsoft Edge.

But the most important fix to be rolled out this time round is a critical fix for a Windows graphics component, which according to KrebsonSecurity and security company Shavlik, addresses flaws that are already being exploited.
