Patch Tuesday for June 2021

According to my count, which is based on the official Security Update Guide, Microsoft’s patch pile for June addresses forty-nine security vulnerabilities.

There are approximately thirty-two updates, affecting .NET, Office, Windows (7, 8.1, and 10), SharePoint, and Visual Studio.

Only people paying through the nose for them will get the Windows 7 updates; the rest of us are out of luck. Windows 8.1 updates can be installed via the Windows Update control panel. Windows 10 systems will receive the updates when Microsoft feels like rebooting your computer, usally at the most inopportune time.

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
