February’s Patch Tuesday has come and gone, but its memories will has for quite some time as it was one of the largest vulnerability fixing months in history, and it even included clearing a Zero Day in Internet Explorer.
Microsoft fixed 99 vulnerabilities this month, which included the aforementioned Zero Day CVE-2020-0674, in Internet Explorer. The fix stems from a series of ongoing attacks against the browser that were first noticed January 17.
Of the remaining issues, 11 holes earned a ranking of “critical,” which is Microsoft’s highest classification.
Most of the critical vulnerabilities are remote code execution and memory corruption issues in services such as the IE scripting engine, the Remote Desktop Protocol service, LNK files, and the Media Foundation component.
Accepting this month’s fixes will automatically install patches for all the 99 vulnerabilities at once.
