April Patch Tuesday brings critical fixes for Office, IE and Windows

It’s another light month of security updates, but admins should be aware that this is the last month to receive some of those updates.

In its advance security notification, Microsoft said it would release four bulletins in its latest Patch Tuesday cycle. Two of the bulletins are marked as critical and two are marked as important.

The critical bulletins address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Internet Explorer, Windows, Office, Office Services and Office Web Apps will be affected.

The important bulletins also address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Windows and Office will be affected.

This is the last month Microsoft will provide support for two products that have been popular with customers. This cycle of Patch Tuesday security updates includes some of the final support the company will give for Windows XP and Office 2003.
