It’s that time of the month again.
Make sure your computers are properly patched, with the latest security fixes from Microsoft and Adobe.
Microsoft has published limited information about the security bulletins it will be publishing on 10 June, as part of its monthly Patch Tuesday round-up.
So this is it. The big one. We’ve had false starts before, but this time Microsoft really *are* going to tell the world about security vulnerabilities in Windows and *not* patch them in XP.

Patch Tuesday has been and gone, which means that if you’re responsible for the security of the computers in your office – or the ones you use at home – it’s time to update your systems once again.
