The November Patch Tuesday edition is different from Microsoft‘ usual update release.

First of all, the company rolled out the major updates before the official Patch Tuesday event. Interestingly enough, Microsoft already pulled two of the new patches due to severe technical issues.

Second, all the updates released on the second Tuesday of the month aim at fixing Microsoft Office bugs. In other words, it seems that Office is the star of the November Patch Tuesday edition.

Without further ado, here is the complete list of updates.
