  • All three critical items deal with remote code execution vulnerabilities in Windows.
  • The important rated bulletins consist of vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, IE, Media Player and Publisher.
    • Seven remote code execution vulnerabilities
    • Three elevation of privileges issues
    • One information disclosure flaw

Get ready to drop some patches next week.  These remote code execution vulnerabilities will only remain “important” for as long as it takes to reverse engineer the patch code and identify the changes.  After that, they become critical.
