13 patches from Microsoft tomorrow

Along the lines of "Super Bowl Week", tomorrow could be considered "Super Patch Day". Microsoft is expected to release at least 13 patches to close up potential security holes in Office, Windows Media Player, MSN Messenger and the 'swiss cheese' of browsers: Internet Explorer.

According to eWeek: "In all, Microsoft Corp. plans to release nine bulletins affecting products that ship with the Microsoft Windows operating system. This will include a planned fix for Internet Explorer.

A separate advisory affecting Microsoft Windows, Windows Media Player and MSN Messenger also will be released with patches. The maximum severity rating for this patch is "critical," Microsoft said."

Updates are typically available through the Microsoft Windows Update site. Just be sure to use Internet Explorer for the update as it is the only browser supported. Once you get the updates, it might be worth switching over to Firefox! ;)
