Critical updates for all versions of Windows

But all versions of Windows? Microsoft released yesterday its latest monthly security bulletin, the so-called Patch on Tuesday.
Security updates begin to correct critical vulnerabilities from Windows Vista and reach the latest Windows 10. As we mentioned above, serious vulnerability (MS16-013) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code as a logged-on user.Windows update

Of course, managers' accounts are at greatest risk as they offer the attacker more rights.

To understand the severity of the vulnerability, even the latest version of Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 4 is affected by vulnerability, and requires a fix.

The good news is that according to Microsoft there was no one who exploited the defect.

The company also released three other critical updates that fix bugs in Window and Office.

Η MS16-012 fix vulnerabilities that allowed an attacker to run code on a system by cheating the user by opening a specially-edited PDF file. Users of Window 8.1 and Window 10 are more affected. The defect does not seem to have been exploited by attackers.

Η MS16-015 fixes a series of vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office memory that could allow an attacker to run code remotely if a user opens a specially crafted Office file. The attacker could acquire the same rights in the system that the logged-on user has. The flaw was reported to the company privately, except for a separate cross-site scripting of SharePoint, which was made public.

Η MS16-022 it fixes many separate vulnerabilities of Adobe Flash Player on all Windows from 8.1 and above.

The company also released a cumulative update for Internet Explorer (MS16-009) and its newer browser, Edge for Windows 10 (MS16-011).

In one of the most serious flaws, an attacker could exploit weaknesses in the way Internet Explorer and Edge browse objects handle memory in order to analyze HTTP responses.

In addition to the above critical updates, Microsoft released four other patches: MS16-014, MS16-016, MS16-017, MS16-018, MS16-019, MS16-020And MS16-021 for "important" issues, such as raising privileges and denial-of-service.
