Microsoft Patch Tuesday: Just two critical fixes but they affect a lot of Windows systems

Tim Greene | Jan. 4, 2013
Microsoft is issuing two critical fixes on this month's Patch Tuesday, one of them affecting its most popular operating system -- Windows 7 -- in conjunction with Windows Server 2008 R2.

However, it is possible that one of this month's patches will repair operating-system vulnerabilities the IE attack could exploit, says Henry. With the details Microsoft has released so far it's impossible to tell. "If the browser is just a path to an underlying vulnerability in the operating system, then this issue will likely be fixed by one of the patches. If the vulnerability is exclusive to the browser, on the other hand, then this is still something to watch out for," Henry says.
