    Microsoft has fixed 39 vulnerabilities in multiple Windows components, Internet Explorer, Edge, Office and .NET Framework, many of which allow for remote code execution.

    The patches are grouped in 13 security bulletins, five of which are rated critical and the rest as important.

    According to researchers from security vendor Qualys, systems administrators should prioritize the MS16-023 security bulletin for Internet Explorer, which covers 13 critical vulnerabilities that can be exploited over the Web to fully take control of computers.

    Windows 10 users who prefer Microsoft Edge to Internet Explorer should prioritize MS16-024 instead, which covers 11 vulnerabilities in Microsoft's new browser, 10 of them critical.
