Exchange and SQL Server Patches Coming Tuesday!

By Vigilize | Friday, August 10, 2012 - Leave a Comment

The upcoming Patch Tuesday will be a big one, according to an article by  of ComputerWorld.   On Thursday Microsoft announced that it will patch at least 14 vulnerabilities next week, including four in Internet Explorer (IE), making it three months in a row that the company has plugged holes in its browser.  The Exchange Patch is supposed to be zero-day, and this is the first patch of Exchange since 2010.   Patching Exchange and SQL server are, of course, problematic for most organizations because of the need for up time.  So there could be a bit of a clash in priorities between security and up-time.
