Posted on by mbordas

Microsoft traditionally releases security bulletins on the second Tuesday of each month, and yesterday was no exception.  In the final Patch Tuesday of 2012, Microsoft released seven security bulletins (including five considered critical), plus a number of non-security updates.

A complete list of the bulletins can be found at Microsoft’s Safety & Security Center.

Additionally, Adobe released a critical Flash Player update.  To update to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, visit the Flash Player download page.

ITS recommends that you keep your devices up to date with the latest security fixes in order to protect your computer and your data from malicious code and unauthorized access.  For instructions on setting your computer to automatically check for updates, visit the ITS Security page.
