Microsoft has released its biggest security update since February last year in order to patch eleven Windows and Office software flaws, eight of which have been deemed 'critical' problems. These issues, which could allow attackers to take control of a user’s computer, are being offered via the firm’s June security bulletin, which went live this week. Of the 12 fixes included, seven of these apply to the Windows operating system, two to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser, plus other fixes are included to address problems with the firm’s Media Player, PowerPoint and Word applications. These fixes are automatically available to Windows XP users with the OS’ ‘Automatic Updates’ feature turned On (find this setting in Control Panel or via Windows’ Program Menu). Alternatively, click here to head to the Microsoft Update website and install the June update manually.
