One critical patch resolved vulnerabilities which could potentially allow an attacker to take over a user's computer by simply visiting a malicious web page while using the IE web browser. Another fixes a vulnerability in the .NET Framework and Silverlight which is present if a user visits a web page using any browser which runs XAML or Silverlight apps.
This week Microsoft announced eight security bulletins which will patch 23 security holes, including patches for Internet Explorer, Silverlight and .NET. Two bulletins were rated as critical, with the other six being considered important.
