Microsoft to Patch 49 Holes Next Tuesday

Next Tuesday, you may need to take an extended break if you are doing manual Windows Updates, with 49 of them coming down the hatch. It makes sense to have them set to automatic, if you don’t already.

Microsoft will fix a record 49 vulnerabilities in its Patch Tuesday release next week that will involve 16 security bulletins affecting Windows, Internet Explorer, Office, and the .NET framework.
