Last week we reported that there will be a massive Windows 7 patch arriving today, and according to reports online, it will be arriving on time. Starting 1pm ET today, Microsoft will be releasing 17 security bulletins that will fix 64 different vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Office and Visual Studio. It has been reported by a security expert who wished to remain anonymous, that at least half of the 64 bug fixes are kernel related. This means that the update will be essential to folks who rely on Windows 7 for their work and they care about their PC’s security. No word on how large the updates will be but let’s hope it’ll be a smooth sailing process (unlike what Microsoft is facing with Windows Phone 7).
