Posted: 09:03PM

With the recent release of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system, the first security update is due to roll out next week. Windows 8 and RT users will be receiving patches that will prevent hackers from running malware on unprotected PCs; more specifically, they prevent remote code execution. The security update is also coming to all other major Windows operating systems including XP, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2003, 2008, and 2012. A total of six updates are coming this Tuesday, with four of them considered critical. Other fixes from the update include patches to fix flaws in both Internet Explorer 9 and the Microsoft Office suites across both PC and Office for Mac.
