Microsoft to Roll Out 14 Patches on Tuesday

Tomorrow, Tuesday aka December 13th Microsoft is set to let loose no less than 14 updates which are supposed to resolve 20 vulnerabilities affecting products like Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Publisher, and Windows Media Player.

Three out of the 14 patches are rated 'Critical' and target bugs that could lead to remote code execution, while the other 11 are rated 'Important' and are set to plug in holes that can result in remote code execution and (unwanted) privilege elevation. As always, Microsoft isn't giving out specifics on the vulnerabilities that will be patched so we'll have to wait for tomorrow to get the full scoop. And to update of course.Source: Microsoft Security Response Center

I have my updates set to download, but ask me when to install. This covers me for updates, but keeps me in control of exactly when I install them and prevents awkward reboots and glitches.

I think now would be a good time to create a system restore point. XD

Publisher is a part of office suite anyway and only 2003 and 2007 are affected.
PowerPoint is affected and how strange that Excel isn't.

And they said nothing about Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player.

check ur update setting and make sure its set to notify you so you can pick and choose. deselect any audio drivers and "hide" it. i think you right click and choose hide update, then it wont bother u about that update anymore.
