Microsoft released a bunch of security updates on Tuesday:
Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday released six patches to fix software flaws that carry its highest threat rating, including three for defects that attackers were already trying to exploit.

The company said all six of the critical flaws could allow an attacker to obtain some access to other people's computers.

The Redmond software maker also released four other patches to fix vulnerabilities that the company deemed less severe.
