Since weeks now we hear a lot of chatter about attacks on the October security updates. It is true that there are several Exploits and Proof of Concepts available. Bur looking at all the messages we see on the net, I think that you have to be extremely careful. Most of the messages are wrong and have to be withdrawn hours after they have been published.
Therefore – I think the safest way to address this is now to roll out the security updates.
