Another year has arrived and we are ringing in the New Year with 8 vulnerabilities patched this month as opposed to the 3 we patched this time last year.  There really isn’t much to say about the trend of the chart seeing as we are starting out a new year however, we will continue to track this year’s vulnerability patch cycle as we did the previous year.  Remember to always be cautious when following links to other sites, as well as opening documents and email attachments, especially when the origin of the documents is unknown.  As we do every month, we’ve released a signature update to address the vulnerabilities fixed in today’s patches.  Happy patching!
