Advance notification for March Patch Tuesday

I received the following quote from CORE Security regarding the advance notification released today for the seven Microsoft security bulletins to be released next Tuesday:

“Preventing future drive-by style attacks and protecting end-users appear to be the theme of this month’s Patch Tuesday. Bulletin number one represents the significance of this update as the Remote Code Execution can be used to target and exploit end-users across all versions of Internet Explorer on Windows desktops.  My concern in reviewing these updates isn’t so much centered around the critical nature of the vulnerability, but rather the number of end-user patches that are required to shore them up. These patches can be a hassle for users to deploy and have the potential to create a long enough delay where hackers can take advantage.” – Alex Horan, senior product manager, CORE Security
