Microsoft October 2020 Patch Tuesday fixes 87 vulnerabilities

Microsoft released its monthly batch of security fixes known as Patch Tuesday on the 13th of October, in which 87 bugs have been patched by the OS manufacturer this month across a wide variety of Microsoft software.

Microsoft has released security patches for all supported versions of the company’s Windows operating system, as well as other company products such as Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Office.

October 2020 provides you with data on the patches published and links to Microsoft support pages and downloads.  Both Windows updates are cumulative in nature and are available through Windows Updates, WSUS, and other upgrade management systems as direct downloads.

The most hazardous bug fixed for the current month is CVE-2020-16898. Depicted as a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability in the Windows TCP/IP stack, this bug can allow attackers to take over Windows systems by sending malicious ICMPv6 Router Advertising packets over a network connection to an unpatched computer.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure security agency (CISA) invites users and managers to review and submit the required updates to Microsoft’s October 2020 Security Update Overview and Implementation Detail.
