Sure, nobody is happy that more security problems have surfaced in the Windows Operating System, with the Internet Explorer browser client or with Excel, Word, DirectX and Internet Security and Acceleration server.
Nobody is glad that amongst these eight updates there are no less than five which have been tagged as being critical in nature by Microsoft, another two important and only one just moderate.
But everyone should be pleased that fixes are coming out to address such critical problems as, at least as far as we can ascertain, the Excel spreadsheet vulnerability that we were reporting way back in February.
It's a shame that it has taken so long, especially seeing as Microsoft was admitting back then that this was a zero day exploit with active attacks out in the wild. Still, better late than never.
The same goes for the IE security update which has not only been marked as critical, but marked as such for Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Server 2008 users.
Maybe we should rename Patch Tuesday to Pain in the Ass Tuesday, at least for the 14th, with so many updates across Operating System variants and applications for IT admins to handle.
