Microsoft rolled out a new round of 50 security fixes for critical bugs affecting the Windows 10 OS and supported software this Tuesday, June 8th, including six zero-day vulnerabilities that are being actively exploited by hackers. Microsoft releases these important patches on the second Tuesday of every month, and while there weren't as many in June as we're used to seeing, the bugs that the company did address appear to be incredibly dangerous, which is why you should update any Windows 10 devices that you own as soon as possible.

The fixes that Microsoft released were for a number of products including, Windows 10, .NET Core and Visual Studio, Microsoft Office, the Microsoft Edge browser, SharePoint, Outlook, and Excel. Five of the CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) are considered critical, while the other 45 are deemed important. Regardless, the latest batch of patches should solve all of them.
