Windows Updates for March 2008

Friday, March 14th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Security Help

Windows Updates for March 2008

It’s that time of the month again! Yep, the Windows Updates for March 2008 were released on Tuesday, March 11 and if you haven’t installed them yet, you need to get busy! Just like every month, these updates are very important for the safety of your computer. If you don’t get them soon, you’re really going to be missing out on some heavy duty protection. So, without further ado, let’s check out what Microsoft brought us this time!

There are four main updates for March and all of them are rated “critical.” All four of them deal with the same issue as well, which is a possible remote code execution. What’s that, you ask? Well, it means a hacker has the ability to gain access to an infected computer and completely take over control. The four programs affected by this are Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office as a whole and Microsoft Office Web Components. So, if you use any of those programs on a regular basis, you’ll definitely want to install the patches right away.

Of course, if you don’t have any of the MS Office programs on your computer, you don’t have much to worry about this month. However, there are a few other non-security patches you will need to get. There are two updates for Microsoft Update and Windows Server Update Services, there are three for Windows Update and there is an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. Again, if you haven’t installed these updates yet, I urge you to do so soon. By doing that, we can all stay safe together!
