Microsoft just released 16 security updates as part of its monthly update schedule. This is the largest amount of updates released in 3 years.
Five of the 16 updates were labeled “critical”, nine “important”, and two “moderate”.
The updates address the Windows Operating System itself, Microsoft Office, and Internet Explorer.
All these updates were released a few minutes ago, at 1 p.m. ET.
If you have Automatic Updates enabled in your Windows computer you don’t need to take action for these updates to install, except maybe a restart at the end of the updates. If Automatic Updates are not enabled, it is strongly recommended you download and install these and any other outstanding Windows Updates.
