The remaining bulletins are rated Important and apply to Windows and Office. According to a blog post on the Microsoft Security Response Center, this will be the most bulletins the company has ever released in a single month. However, in total CVE (Common Vulnerability and Exposure) count this release ties with last June's Patch Tuesday.
Earlier this week, Microsoft also released an emergency out-of-band patch for a critical Windows vulnerability that was being exploited by a fast-spreading virus and other malware. The so-called "shortcut" vulnerability could be used by attackers to take control of a computer with little or no interaction from users.
