Posted on by tzuchinc

Microsoft

Microsoft released five critical updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, Edge, and Office, as well as a critical update to protect Windows systems from a zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player. These updates address vulnerabilities that could lead to remote code execution.

Microsoft released seven additional updates, which it classified as important, for .NET Framework and Windows.

For more information about these updates, see the Microsoft security bulletin at technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin.

Apple

Security researchers have discovered two zero-day vulnerabilities in QuickTime on Windows. As Apple no longer provides updates for QuickTime on Windows, you may wish to uninstall the application. These vulnerabilities only apply to the Windows, rather than the Mac, version of QuickTime.

Adobe released updates for Flash Player, Creative Cloud Desktop Application, and Robo Help Server to address vulnerabilities that could allow a malicious user to access your system. For more information, see the Adobe security bulletin at helpx.adobe.com/security.html.
