Today's patches also included fixes for DirectX and local security flaws that could lead to system compromise on machines where someone has local access. Other fixes included numerous patches for Internet Explorer 5, 6 and 7, though no fixes were posted for Internet Explorer 8. Microsoft has been looking to curb the need for updates on older versions anyway, with the announcement that the browser will soon become a high priority update, in an attempt to convince people to install it. All in all, it was a pretty decent patch cycle this month, with Microsoft knocking out well over twenty security flaws across numerous platforms.
