Tripwire's October Patch Priority Index (PPI) brings together the top vulnerabilities from Microsoft, Adobe, and Oracle.
This month sees the entire spectrum of popular desktop software covered. We start with the latest update from Adobe for Flash, and you'll see that further down we've included the latest (albeit older) Reader update as a reminder to ensure your patches are installed. On the Oracle side, we've got brand new updates for Oracle Database, MySQL, Solaris, and Java... so if you're running those make sure you update as soon as possible.
On the OS Update side, we've got the latest OS X update from Apple, as well as a number of Microsoft patches, including the critical Word vulnerability from this month's Patch Tuesday, the Internet Explorer OOB patch, and a couple of other Microsoft updates that we advise patching if they affect your environment.
