Time to update Windows! September Patch Tuesday has arrived and fixes 86 vulnerabilities
Every month, on the second Tuesday, Microsoft brings news for Windows and many of its products. These focus on security and applying solutions to solve problems that put users at risk.
This month was different and that's why September's Patch Tuesday arrived. Microsoft has now resolved to fix 86 vulnerabilities in its products and ensure their protection. These have high severity levels so it's time to update Windows.
The latest list of updates for Windows and Microsoft products was released a few hours ago. This one follows the same plan that the software giant has had for several years and that this update concentrates all the essential elements for user security.
This time it was guaranteed that 86 security flaws are dealt with and that they don't affect users again. Of these, 2 are of high severity and include those that affect the Edge. Without the browser, there are 60 failures and of these 3 are critical, one moderate and 56 important.
One of many that have been resolved is the recent bug affecting MSHTML. It allows it to be explored and gain remote PC access without any user intervention. There was no fix for this issue, which is now resolved.
This was a flaw that was known to be actively exploited and had no solution to prevent it from being exploited. With the fix released, users are now protected and away from potential problems that arise in the meantime.
Another issue that has since been resolved was the one affecting Windows printers (PrintNightmare). After several solutions, which didn't always work, Microsoft was finally able to address this issue fully.
With all solutions present in this security update, it is important that this update be installed. There are several problems that are resolved and that brought serious security issues to Windows and other Microsoft applications.
