April 2011 Patch Tuesday is a DOOZY!

In Microsoft's Advance Notification Bulletin they recently announced a whopping 17 Bulletins! 

These include the following software categories:
- Windows Operating System and Components (OS + IE)
- Microsoft Office Suites and Software (duh, Office)
- Microsoft Server Software (more Office)
- Microsoft Developer Tools and Software (Visual Studio)

The severity breakdown is as follows:
CRITICAL - 9
IMPORTANT - 8 

***PAY EXTRA CLOSE ATTENTION TO BULLETIN 1, which affects ALL versions of Internet Explorer on ALL supported Operating Systems!  Rumor has it that PoC code already exists and boxes are already being actively exploited! So enjoy your weekend, because there is gonna be a lot of folks frantically patching boxes next week.
