Microsoft has released 64 patches today covering IE, Edge, Exchange, Windows and Office. There are 17 rated Critical, 45 rated Important, 1 is rated Moderate and is rated Low in severity—this is much less than last month’s release of over 80 updates, however there are still some surprises in this release to keep you busy.

Prioritize Now: Public Announced and Current Exploits

Four of the updates CVE-2019-0683, CVE-2019-0754, CVE-2019-0757 and CVE-2019-0809 are marked as “Publicly Disclosed” meaning there is an increased risk of attack in the very near future, and two updates CVE-2019-0797 & CVE-2019-0808 are marked as “Being Exploited” meaning you should prioritize them now.

Robert Brown, Director of Services for Verismic said, “You should treat these 6 updates with the highest importance, and you should especially treat CVE-2019-0797 & CVE-2019-0808 as a Zero Day because active exploits means actual attempts on your networks by those who wish to expose your data.”

Adobe Patches Flash, Photoshop and Digital Editions

Adobe has given a slight reprieve to IT managers this month by releasing only 3 updates: one for Flash, Photoshop and Digital Editions. Although these updates carry a Critical severity, they are ranked by Adobe with a Priority of 3 meaning administrators should install these updates at their discretion.

Features Updates Due for Retirement

On April 9, the Windows 10 feature update version 1709 will be due for retirement on Home, Pro and Pro for Workstations editions. If you are still using Enterprise or Education editions, you have another year to plan your upgrade.
