The biggest Patch Tuesday in the company's history, this month Microsoft fixes 115 bugs. There's also a security advisory for a critical bug in SMBv3 and a patch for a flaw in the way Windows parses .LNK files. The bug could let an attacker run code regardless of whether a user opens the infected file.
