Being the 2nd Tuesday of the month, Microsoft released several patches for various issues within Windows on it regular patch cycle. I got 4 automatic updates. One for a security update to Media Player 10, another for a security update to a Media Player plug-in, a security update for XP, and the February edition of the Malicious Software Removal Tool.
There were also updates to MS Office, but since I don’t use Office, I didnt get the update. So, just a heads up to all the readers. Go run Windows Update ASAP and keep safe.
