April's Patch Tuesday

April's Patch Tuesday brings with it 6 fixes deemed critical and 7 that are marked important.  One of these fixes MS16-039 is for Security Update for Microsoft Graphics Component (3148522) This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Office, Skype for Business, and Microsoft Lync. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or visits a webpage that contains specially crafted embedded fonts.   Other critical rated bulletins are MS16-037, MS16-038, MS16-040, MS16-042.  

Also  on the list was a patch MS16-050 which is for a vulnerability in Flash Player.  Interestingly enough, Adobe also released a patch for this issue CVE-2016-1034 . If not patched it seems that someone could remotely read and write files to an unprotected system.  

As always it is important to keep your computer up to date.   Call Glasser Tech at 516-762-0155 if you have any questions regarding Windows or Adobe updates.
