Next Tuesday is both Microsoft's Patch Tuesday for April, and Adobe's
quarterly patch release. Combined, there are a total of 27
vulnerabilities being patched in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office,
Adobe Acrobat, and the Acrobat Reader application. It will be a busy day
for IT administrators and information security professionals to analyze
and prioritize the deluge of updates.
Microsoft issued for Internet Explorer on March 30.
Nevertheless, Patch Tuesday is coming. Amol Sarwate, manager of Qualys'
Vulnerability Research Lab, e-mailed to provide some expert insight on
what Microsoft has in store. "There are 11 security bulletins that
affect a range of Windows operating system components as well as
Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange. This is a fairly large update
and will keep system administrators busy on Patch Tuesday."
