Microsoft issues special update MS14-068

Two of the updates originally scheduled for release last week for Patch Tuesday were held back. Yesterday one of those updates was released. MS14-068 addresses security vulnerabilities in all versions of Windows. We recommend installing the update as soon as possible.

Brian Krebs has additional details, as does Ars Technica. A post on Microsoft’s Security Research and Defense Blog provides technical details of the vulnerability.
