Like greased lightnin’.  Granted I don’t have overhead lifters or a four speed on the floor,  nevertheless today was systematic .  Nine bulletins requires that a lot of pieces come together.  Hands down this was the smoothest release based on “pain” to bulletin ratio I can remember.    Plus my trusty companion, vente almond mocha helped too. 

This month has an interesting range of vulnerabilities affecting a broad spectrum of code.  If you are new to the world of security this is a good set of bulletins to learn about different technologies and vulnerability types. 

You can find all the details on the bulletins here:
