On the second Tuesday of each month, Microsoft rolls out security patches in bulk. They are there to keep the cyber world a better place and to prevent attackers from penetrating your PC. This Tuesday was no exception and 14 security updates were released by Microsoft. Together with 18 updates by Adobe, all were to fix the commonly used operating systems and applications such as Windows Server 2003, 2008, Vista, Windows 7, 8, and Adobe Flash Player.
Okay, so what else is happening when these medicines are raining upon our vulnerable PCs? Security Bulletin actually serves more than a local pharmacy to our PCs, it unfortunately provides clues to hackers, about what applications are vulnerable, where the holes are, how they are patched, and may eventually enable hackers to reverse engineer exploits at the published vulnerabilities.
