    Theoretical Thinking and the June 2014 Bulletin Release

    Speaking of the here and now, today we release seven security bulletins, two rated Critical and five rated Important in severity, addressing 66 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) for Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office customers. But before we get into the details of the updates, I want to take a moment to provide some additional insight into how we assess and recommend those severity ratings. For every issue, we consider ”what if” – what’s the severest outcome from a potential cyberattack? We want to provide our best guidance on the risk assessment for our customers, and that requires consideration of the worst-case scenario.

    Thanks Ron.
    I noticed on my new Win 7 that it required two reboots. Any others having seen this too?

    Two reboots would not be considered normal. In the case of a new Windows 7 PC, there may be exceptions to this -- depending on what the user chose as applied updates.

    IOW - not normal.

    Just to make it clear, I was not asked to reboot twice.

    I was asked to reboot after the updates as normal, and then when it came back up and was doing the 'configuring' it rebooted again without asking me.

    However all is fine.. there are no problems.

    Had a few issues before and after installation. Initially only two out of nine updates installed, seven failed the first time and had to restart three times before everything worked correctly on my netbook. On my 64 bit desktop there were eleven and everything was fine.
