Slowly but surely, Microsoft is pushing users towards Windows 10 and its new browser, Microsoft Edge.
Windows users who still prefer Internet Explorer to all other browsers have been urged by Microsoft to update to the latest (and last) version of the browser (v11), as the company plans to end support for all previous versions in January.
Microsoft released twelve patches fixing over 50 vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Active Directory Service, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Journal, Microsoft Office, Windows Media Center, .NET Framework, Windows Task Management, Microsoft Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server and Lync Server, and Windows Hyper-V.
Microsoft has pushed out an emergency out-of-band Internet Explorer update, which fixes a critical memory corruption vulnerability (CVE-2015-2502) that is being actively exploited in attacks in the wild.
If they haven't already, Internet Explorer users would do well to implement the security update provided by Microsoft last month, as among the fixed vulnerability is one that is currently being exploited via the popular commercial Angler exploit kit.
