Microsoft fixes a much smaller set of software product code this month for "Critical" vulnerabilities, and a handful for "Important" fixes. But whoa, almost 60 remote code execution flaws exist in the six versions of Internet Explorer and the Microsoft components that render fonts on your system! Not only is that a very long list of memory corruption issues, but one of the IE bugs reports, credited to Peter Van Eeckhoutte, is over 180 days old.
