Microsoft Patches Security Flaws For Windows, Office, Exchange Server And More

Microsoft has released its monthly cumulative update for the month of June, issuing 16 patches bundles for 44 security vulnerabilities across a bunch of the company’s software including the Windows operating system, Office, Internet Explorer Edge and Exchange Server. Five of the patch packages concerned vulnerabilities that were rated as “critical”. Here are the details.

Microsoft has issued 16 security bulletins in total that covers the 44 security flaws. Out of the security bulletins, seven concerned remote code execution which could allow hackers to take over vulnerable PCs, six were for elevation of privilege, two were for denial of service and one was for information disclosure.

If you have Automatic Updates turned on for your PC that runs a supported operating system, the patches would have already been applied. With so many critical vulnerabilities on the list, if you haven’t applied the latest Windows update, you should get a move on and do so now.

You can read a summary of the patches over at the Microsoft Security Bulletin page.
