    February's Patch Tuesday is closing in fast and, according to Microsoft, it's going to see the arrival of no less than nine updates - four rated 'Critical' and nine 'Important', that will crush 21 vulnerabilities.

    The incoming patches tackle bugs that could lead to remote code execution and privilege elevation. As (almost) always, Microsoft didn't go into specifics but it did say the vulnerabilities affect Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, and .NET/Silverlight. All the updates will be made available on Valentine's Day (February 14th) at about 10 am PST (6 pm GMT).

    Is anyone taking on odds on vulnerabilities being the only thing it crushes?

    Why cant they release a patch that supports USB 3.0 natively so I can start installing Windows 7 on my USB 3.0 flash drive in a USB 3.0 port?

    That would require a new OS install disk. Maybe with an SP2(and corresponding install media) release?
