Among the updates this month, Microsoft is closing out two current security advisories:
Vulnerabilities in SMB Could Allow Remote Code Execution (975497)
Vulnerabilities in the FTP Service in Internet Information Services (975191)
The security updates for these vulnerabilities are available for download at the Microsoft Update web site (https://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/). Please note that systems joined to the LSU Active Directory automatically receive the critical updates when available. Other updates will have to be installed from Microsoft Update.
Remember to close all applications at the end of work day today, as security updates may require a restart of your machine.
