Microsoft released its June 2020 Patch Tuesday patches yesterday. This is Microsoft’s largest Patch Tuesday ever, releasing 129 patches for vulnerabilities. Eleven of these patches are for critical bugs that can be exploited for remote code execution. Though not classified as critical, the other 118 still rank as important severity since they can lead to privilege escalation and possible spoofing attacks.
Fortunately, Windows has not reported any active exploitations or zero-day attacks on these vulnerabilities. So if users install these updates as soon as possible, they shouldn't be vulnerable to an attack.
For Windows users, follow these steps to install the newest updates:
Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Windows updates
