For October we are releasing 13 bulletins (eight critical and five important), addressing 34 vulnerabilities, affecting Windows, Internet Explorer, Office, Silverlight, Forefront, Developer Tools, and SQL Server. Most of these updates require a restart so please factor that into your deployment planning.  For more information visit the Advanced Notification page on the MSRC blog

Also, for customers who have some questions, there will be a live webcast on Wednesday Oct. 14 at 11:00 a.m. PST and get answers to any questions you might have. To register, just follow this link.
