Microsoft fixes 'critical' security bugs affecting all versions of Windows

Microsoft patched 48 separate vulnerabilities — the majority of which were the highest "critical" rating.

Microsoft has patched two security vulnerabilities affecting all supported versions of Windows.

The software giant said Tuesday that an attacker could remotely exploit a "critical"-rated remote code execution vulnerability in how Windows Search handles objects in memory, allowing a full takeover of an affected computer.

An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights, said the company in an advisory. The attacker would have to send a specially crafted message to the Windows Search service. An attacker could then elevate privileges and "take control of the computer," the advisory said."

Maybe in a month or so we'll be in an RV park with wifi, so we can download this update.  Otherwise, the bandwidth for these updates uses up our entire monthly allotment.  And it takes too long to update to do it when sitting in the entryway at Walmart.
