It's Patch Tuesday which means it's time to update your Windows devices. On PCs, this update will be labeled "KB4048955" in Windows Update.

Details about four vulnerabilities were published online before today's patches, but fortunately, none were exploited in real-world attacks. Tracked as CVE-2017-11827, CVE-2017-8700, and CVE-2017-11848, the issues can lead to code execution and information disclosure.

To help some early enterprise adopters that are still finishing their transition to Windows as a service, we will be providing a supplemental servicing package for Windows 10, version 1511 for an additional six months, until April 2018, providing updates to address critical and important security issues that arise during that time.

Besides these, two other security fixes stand out.
