    Microsoft Patches Six Zero-Day Security Holes

    Microsoft today released another round of security updates for Windows operating systems and supported software, including fixes for six zero-day bugs that malicious hackers already are exploiting in active attacks.

    June’s Patch Tuesday addresses just 49 security holes — about half the normal number of vulnerabilities lately. But what this month lacks in volume it makes up for in urgency: Microsoft warns that bad guys are leveraging a half-dozen of those weaknesses to break into computers in targeted attacks.”

    Can’t view Outlook Mail? It’s a bug!

    Microsoft Outlook bug prevents viewing or creating email worldwide

    “A Microsoft Outlook update released today for the desktop client introduced bugs that prevent users from creating or viewing mail. Today, Microsoft released Outlook version 2104 build 13929.20372, and after installing the update, users of the click-to-run desktop client found that they could no longer properly view emails or create new ones. When attempting to view an email, instead of seeing the entire message body, they only see a small portion or a single line of the email message.”

    Microsoft has released a fix. The article shows a work-around if not fixed yet.

    Microsoft Patch Tuesday, May 2021 Edition

    Microsoft today released fixes to plug at least 55 security holes in its Windows operating systems and other software. Four of these weaknesses can be exploited by malware and malcontents to seize complete, remote control over vulnerable systems without any help from users. On deck this month are patches to quash a wormable flaw, a creepy wireless bug, and yet another reason to call for the death of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) web browser.”
