    PATCH WATCH

    Microsoft releases a taxing week of patches


    By Susan Bradley

    Digitally-signed software is a system designed to build trust in the applications you install on a PC.

    Most of us don't think twice about installing digitally-signed software, but we should — now that malware has made this system less trustworthy.

    Susan, regarding the Java Updates, it is reported in a comment at Woody Leonhard's site that just today Java released JRE 6 Update 20. I think Java SE has the same update. You might want to update your article to relect this. This patch closes off the serious vulnerability which Robert Vamosi references in his column in the current Windows Secrets Newsletter.

    Susan, regarding the patches this week. IE8 is my browser. I access a security DVR from work. It would not allow me to collect a "snapshot" (normally dropped to the desktop). It also would let me download a DVR file to my PC. I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out what happened. Apparently one of the patches turned on "enable protected mode", because as soon as I turned that off, the program began to work again.
