Microsoft to Issue Out-of-Band Patch

Next Tuesday, Microsoft has announced that they will be coming out with an out-of-band patch next week(072909). If you don't have updates downloaded automatically, you may want to start checking for update on Tuesday after you get home from work.

This will be only the third time that Microsoft has issued an out-of-band security patch in the past 25 months. This of course is due to the seriousness of the vulnerability that is currently being exploited by the bad guys out there in the Internet world. If you aren't familiar with Microsoft's schedule, they regularly schedule patches to be released on the second Tuesday of each month. This allows business to react, and prepare for their release.

Stay safe out there and have a fabulous weekend!!
