Update Microsoft and Adobe products to address vulnerabilities
Microsoft and Adobe have issued advisories regarding updates to address vulnerabilities in their widely used products.
Updates address vulnerabilities in computer systems that remote attackers can otherwise use to gain access to systems or information (such as online banking details).
A vulnerability is a weakness that can leave a computer and its systems open to attack. Attacks can be carried out a number of ways, including through malicious software (malware) such as viruses and spyware that can monitor a users' activity on a computer and stop systems operating properly.
