Following a frantic December that featured an emergency patch for
Internet Explorer, Windows administrators may be looking forward to a
month with fewer security worries.
And it might appear that they're getting a break: Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT)
on its Patch Tuesday released its January Security Bulletin featuring
only one bulletin that addresses three vulnerabilities.
"It's a great way to start the year," said Andrew Storms, director of
security operations at nCircle Network Security, in a phone interview.
"It's going to give everyone the opportunity to clean up from the
patches of 2008."
Oracle (NSDQ: ORCL) administrators have a bit more work to do: Oracle on
Tuesday released 41 patches as part of its quarterly patch cycle.
