    For July 2015, Microsoft released 14 security bulletins, with four patches rated as “critical” remote code execution (RCE) fixes. At least one of the fixes rated “critical” and some rated as “important” are currently being exploited in the wild.

    MS15-065 resolves 28 flaws in Internet Explorer that could otherwise “modify how IE, VBScript and Jscript handle objects in memory.” Qualys CTO Wolfgang Kandek pointed out that three of these were previously known (CVE-2051-2413, CVE-2015-2419 and CVE-2015-2421 ). “CVE-2015-2425 seems to come from the data dump at Hacking Team as well and I am impressed by the fix speed that Microsoft showed here.
