1 critical IE update, 3 important updates in September Patch Tuesday

Windows Server admins can expect September to be a light month of Patch Tuesday security updates.

In its advance security notification, Microsoft outlined four security bulletins to be released next week. There is only one critical bulletin, and the other three are important.

The month’s lone critical bulletin addresses a remote code execution vulnerability. Multiple versions of Windows and Internet Explorer will be affected.

The three important bulletins address denial of service and elevation of privilege vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Windows Server and Microsoft Lync will be affected.

There are noticeably fewer security updates this month than compared to August. Microsoft released nine bulletins in the last Patch Tuesday cycle, including a critical patch for multiple versions of IE. Microsoft also gave all supported IE versions a whitelisting functionality.
