Microsoft recently rolled out a series of critical security updates for all Windows versions. Two of these updates patch a slew of security vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge that could allow for remote execution of code.

Update KB4013073 for Internet Explorer

Security update KB4013073 is rated critical for Internet Explorer 9 and Internet Explorer 11 on Windows computer, and moderate for Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer 10, and Internet Explorer 11 for affected Windows servers.

Update KB4013071  for Microsoft Edge
