Microsoft says no patches for March
There will be no security Bulletin from Microsoft this March.
The company moved to a monthly cycle of updates last year, with security bulletins scheduled to be released on the second Tuesday of each month. After the ‘critical-heavy’ February update, however, there will be no March update appearing tomorrow.
Last month’s update saw a raft of critical-rated bulletins and Redmond obviously feels no need to schedule another round so soon.
Most of the 12 updates concerned the remote execution of code, in technologies such as Server Message Block (SMB) processing, OLE and COM, and DHTML editing. There was also a critical vulnerability in the processing of PNG images, which could lead to buffer overruns, and a ‘critical’ rated cumulative update for Internet Explorer.
