November is here, and with it comes yet another batch of Patch Tuesday updates that many users have been eagerly waiting for.

As with all the other Patch Tuesday updates of previous months, these bring a host of changes, fixes, and improvements to all supported versions of the Windows OS.

Last month, the Redmond company fixed 74 vulnerabilities (81 including Microsoft Edge), three classified as Critical, 70 as Important, and one as Low.

We also found out that Windows 11 had issues with AMD CPUs, and Microsoft also released the first cumulative update for their latest operating system.

What can we expect from this month’s Patch Tuesday?

The tech giant addressed a large number of CVEs last month and it’s safe to say that we can expect that number to remain high.

And since we already received our first Windows 11 update in October, it will be interesting to see how closely the new one, if there will be any, reflects what is being addressed in Windows 10 as well.

With the last big push before the holidays, we can expect major updates for all the operating systems and applications, including the ESUs.

We’ve not seen any legacy .NET framework updates in a while, nor SQL server, so carefully review all Microsoft has to offer this Tuesday.

Also, Adobe released security updates for almost all their products on October 26, except for Acrobat and Reader.

And although we haven’t seen a prenotification on their Security Updates page, it’s still worth being on the lookout for security releases for these products.

All-in-all it could be a pretty busy month, with a lot to address, so we eagerly await to see what’s in store for us.

As we know, software updates typically pick up in the last part of the year and we also need to factor in adding support for the release of all these new operating systems.
