By Bill Toulas / March 11, 2020

Microsoft has released this month’s patch for Windows and other products of the company, fixing a total of 117 vulnerabilities. Interestingly enough, 25 of the now-fixed flaws are categorized as "critical", while 91 are classified as "important". None of these flaws were under active exploitation by malicious actors, but it is advisable to apply the patches as quickly as you can to mitigate the risk of getting hacked.

Below is a selection of the most important flaws and vulnerabilities that were addressed by Microsoft via this month's patch.

In most of the above cases, the attackers would send malicious files or URLs via email messages to the victims. Thus, you are advised to be careful when receiving unsolicited messages, and also to apply the available patches soon.

If you are using Windows 7, this is the first patch that isn’t available to you, so you’re already vulnerable to these 117 identified and fixed flaws. In any case, you should not refrain from using a security suite from a reliable vendor, as well as to update all applications and components of the software you're using.
