Microsoft has released April’s Patch Tuesday in the new Security Update Guide format. There are 61 security updates for products such as its operating systems, browsers, the Office suite, and others.
This month’s Patch Tuesday see’s the retirement of the security bulletins format (MS17-XXX) in favor of a new searchable database that lists individual updates (KBxxxxxxx) one by one.
This update also patches a notable zero-day disclosed over the weekend, tracked as CVE-2017-0199.
The last security updates for Vista are also included, because as of today, Microsoft has stopped all support (free and paid) for the Operating System.
