Abstract

The Critical bulletins effect the following software:

  • Silverlight Runtime
  • Internet Explorer
  • Microsoft Edge
  • VBScript and JScript scripting engine
  • Microsoft Office, Visio, and SharePoint
  • Windows Win32k Kernel Components

Somewhat surprisingly with over twenty vulnerabilities, Microsoft claims to be unaware of public exploitation of any of them at the time of reporting, however they acknowledge at least three were publicly disclosed. Nonetheless, the urgency to patch remains, so please update your software.
