Microsoft also provides information to help customers prioritize monthly security updates with any non-security, high-priority updates that are being released on the same day as the monthly security updates. Please see the section, Other Information.

AND FOR MY FRIENDS WHO USE APPLE/MAC 

know this:

Apple surpasses Microsoft in security vulnerabilities
You probably heard Apple surpassed Microsoft as top tech dog in May. Well, here's another area where Apple beat Microsoft this year: security vulnerabilities.

In its recently released half-year report, Danish security firm Secunia found that Apple surpassed Oracle this year as the software developer with the most vulnerabilities.

Apple and Oracle were followed by Microsoft, which has held the No. 3 spot in Secunia's list since 2006. Others in the top 10 list of software vendors with most vulnerabilities were HP, Adobe Systems, IBM, VMware, Cisco, Google and the Mozilla foundation.

This is particularly interesting when you take into consideration how many new iPhones iPods and the new iPads that have been purchased this recent Christmas.

SOPHOS
has a free anti-virus software for Mac
to get it.
