Th only thing unusual about this month's Microsoft security patches is that one of them, MS14-001 that could allow remote code execution in Word and Office Web Apps. A rarely discussed issue with cloud-based computing is the potential for truly widespread mayhem, averted in this case. Other Microsoft fixes include MS14-003 for the XP/Server 2013 kernel (elevation of privilege) and roughly the same deal for the Window 7/Server 2008 kernel (MS14-004).
