Microsoft today put security professionals on overtime with its largest-ever release of security patches -- 13 new updates that address some 34 vulnerabilities in Windows applications.
In its October security bulletin, Microsoft disclosed 22 critical vulnerabilities and 12 that were rated less threatening. The previous record was 31, which was set in June, researchers said. Included in the updates was a patch for the flaw in Server Message Block Version 2 (SMBv2), which was disclosed earlier this month. Exploits for that vulnerability already have been seen in the wild.
