Akamai Edge 2013 and Patch Tuesday

I'm in Washington D.C. for the Akamai Edge customer conference, and while it's easy to lose sight of the daily chores of security when you're spending the day listening to talks, there's still always work to be done. An example of that: Tuesday is Microsoft's regularly-scheduled security patch release.

We'll be talking to Akamai customers at Edge about how our efforts play into their vulnerability management needs. We'll also talk about our own efforts to keep our patches up to date. So it's fitting that Patch Tuesday coincides with our event. 

Microsoft has released an advance notification bulletin on what to expect tomorrow. Here's a breakdown:

Bulletin 1: Critical 
Remote Code Execution, affects Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer
