Microsoft Patches for August


August's Microsoft Patch Tuesday includes a number of important security updates for Internet Explorer, Office, Edge, and other components of Windows. These patches fix vulnerabilities in Windows systems that allow for remote code execution, privilege escalation, and information disclosure.  In  total, Microsoft released a total of 9 security updates, 5 of which were rated critical and 4 of which were rated Important.

The UCLA Information Security Office recommends that these patches be applied immediately through Automatic Updates for standalone Windows workstations or through a centralized patching solution for enterprise workstations. Find out more information at Microsoft's Security TechCenter.
