Another month, another patch tuesday!
Microsoft has released updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, SQL Server, Server Software, .NET Framework, and Internet Explorer as part of the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for August 2014. Some of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution, elevation of privilege, or security feature bypass.
Adobe has released security updates to address multiple vulnerabilities in Flash Player, Adobe Reader and Acrobat. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
