    It's interesting to read that two of the four bulletins are XP related in that IE6,7 and 8 are accommodated.

    That's good. :)

    The April 2014 Security Updates
    Dustin C. Childs
    8 Apr 2014 11:00 AM

    T. S. Elliot once said, “What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” So as we put one season to bed, let’s start another by looking at the April security updates. Today, we release four bulletins to address 11 CVEs in Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office. The update for Microsoft Word addresses the issues described in Microsoft Security Advisory 2953095. For those who prioritize, we recommend this bulletin as well as the update for Internet Explorer be on the top of your list.
