Microsoft Corp has just released more than 100 security updates, giving Windows 10 administrators the need to patch now. The company is well known for its constant security updates that can be overwhelming for fans.
Of these Windows 10 updates, 93 are reportedly important, 17 critical, and two are of moderate significance. There is a patch for zero-day privilege escalation vulnerability, which was reported by Google engineers. It is often found in the Windows Cryptographic Driver and has been exploited by hackers in real life.
Patched vulnerabilities have been maintained in products like the Azure Sphere, Microsoft Dynamics, MS Exchange Server, and others like MS Office, Windows 10. Therefore, it is very important for users to install these security updates so as to avoid vulnerability issues.
In addition to these updates, the Microsoft team put together a guide to help administrators understand each step and the reasons why the security updates are to be done as soon as possible.
The team also offered guidelines by saying that the new version of the security update guide demonstrates the commitment of the organization to industry standards. It makes use of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). It is a fitting method used to describe or explain vulnerabilities with attributes. Thus, CVSS correctly informs on the attack vector or the seriousness of the attack.
The Microsoft Security Response Center has been doing good by scoring Microsoft Windows for several years. Its job includes researching and finding solutions to browser vulnerabilities as well. The team is geared toward reporting all security lapses and scoring them, while also displaying full details of these vulnerabilities from now on.
Further, security researchers will be able to add information on the columns displayed in the Security Update Guide. From now on, the guide will show all vulnerabilities release dates, descriptions, titles, and other vital information. There will also be a frequently asked questions column where researchers and administrators can learn more.
