For those of you who have never noticed, the second Tuesday of the month is so called "Patch Tuesday" where Microsoft pushes out it's patches and updates. I will be posting notifications here as a reminder when there are important ones released.

April & May 2018 Patch Tuesdays both pushed out over 30 important security patches out.

June 2018 patches include only 11 critical updates, but those 11 are just as important and should be updated immediately.

Microsoft today released security patch updates for more than 50 vulnerabilities, affecting Windows, Internet Explorer, Edge, MS Office, MS Office Exchange Server, ChakraCore, and Adobe Flash Player—11 of which are rated critical and 39 as important in severity.

Only one of these vulnerabilities, a remote code execution flaw (CVE-2018-8267) in the scripting engine, is listed as being publicly known at the time of release. However, none of the flaws are listed as under active attack.

Microsoft has also addressed an important vulnerability in its Cortana Smart Assistant that could allow anyone to unlock your Windows computer. You can head on to this article to learn how the bug can be used to retrieve confidential information from a locked system and even run malicious code.
