    MS keeps admins busy with critical Vista patches



    Microsoft will be putting out eight security patches on 8 April, five of them with the unlovable critical label, in the latest run of its regular update cycle.

    The critical updates cover a brace of bugs in Internet Explorer, a pair on Windows and one involving Office. All five might lend themselves to remote execution of malicious software on vulnerable clients.

    All supported versions of Windows - including Vista - ought to be updated once the patches come out. Vista is subject to as many critical patches as XP (four), which doesn't say a lot for its much-vaunted enhanced security, especially since they arrive less than a month after the release of the first service pack for Vista.
