Yep, need to patch as some of these vulnerabilities are quite serious.

Another month, another batch of major Windows security flaws.

Microsoft said Tuesday as part of its its monthly security bulletin that all Windows users should patch their systems to prevent attackers from exploiting at least two critical flaws.

MS15-128 fixes a series of graphics memory corruption flaws, which can allow an attacker to install programs, view and delete data, and create new accounts with full user rights.

The flaw, which affects Windows Vista and later , also affects Skype for Business 2016, Microsoft Lync 2010 and Lync 2013, as well as Office 2007 and Office 2010.

Another major flaw, MS15-124, affects all supported versions of Internet Explorer, which can allow an attacker to to gain the same user rights as the current user. Those running as an administrator would be most affected by the flaw.

Da Boss!
