Happy February everybody!

 

I can’t believe it’s already February, where did the time go??

 

It’s time for a Patch Tuesday rundown, so let’s get into it!

 

This month we do have some good news - Microsoft had zero critical vulnerabilities this month, yay! They did, however, release 48 high severity patches, which will keep folks busy this month for sure. One of these vulnerabilities was publicly disclosed, CVE-2022-21989.

Adobe released security bulletins for five of their products, with 17 CVEs in total.

Apple’s updates included fixes for 16 CVEs, one of with is critical for iOS and may have been exploited already.

Google released a new version of Chrome for Mac, Windows and Linux to address a security vulnerability whereby an attacker could gain control of a system.

Mozilla released two security advisories, both with a high rating, addressing 13 CVEs.

 

For more information on these updates, you can check out our Patch Tuesday Index, our blog that breaks down these vulnerabilities in more detail, or our brand new Patch Tuesday Rapid Response Center (I’d bookmark this one :wink: ). 

 

‘Til next time!
