Microsoft patches vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, and Skype

Microsoft has patched 62 vulnerabilities across its software product portfolio during "patch Tuesday", reported Symantec.

Of the issues patched, 27 were rated critical.

Security issues in Microsoft Graphics, Internet Explorer, Edge, Office, Skype for Business, JET Database Engine, Windows, and Chakra Core were patched.

One of the vulnerabilities allowed an attacker to remotely execute arbitrary code and take over a system using an embedded font.

Several flaws in the scripting engines of Explorer and Edge were patched which also allowed arbitrary remote code to be executed.

There was also an issue in Outlook which allowed attackers to bypass security and execute commands.

Microsoft patched three critical vulnerabilities in Windows, one of which affected the Windows Domain Name System API and let an attacker execute remote code on a machine.
