    Today is the second Tuesday of October, which means that it is the 10th Microsoft Patch Tuesday of 2015. There are only six new security bulletins this month from Microsoft, and only three of them are rated as Critical by Microsoft, but the potential scope and impact of the underlying vulnerabilities has security experts stressing the importance of applying the updates sooner rather than later.

    Microsoft released 6 security bulletins, resolving a total of 19 vulnerabilities. Half of the security bulletins are Critical and all of the Critical bulletins (MS15-106, MS15-108, MS15-109) are remote code execution issues affecting Internet Explorer, the Edge browser, VBScript & JScript Engines, Windows Shell, Office, Office Services and apps, as well as Microsoft Server Software.
