Microsoft Security Updates for August 2015

This week on Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released fourteen security bulletins, four of which are considered critical.

Systems affected include Windows, Internet Explorer, Office, Silverlight, Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Lync, and Microsoft Server Software. Some of the fixes are for Windows 10, including its newest browser Microsoft Edge. An attacker could run malicious code on an affected machine if a user visits a specially-crafted webpage, allowing access at the logged-in user level.

Be sure to accept the updates as they occur, or go to the Windows Update site. You may need to restart your machine after installing patches.
