Microsoft releases many non-security updates
According to “zdnet”, as is usually the case, Microsoft released a large number of non-security updates today along with the Patch Tuesday security updates. Most of the 24 updates are for Windows 8 and other recent versions.
First, the monthly update to the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool is out. This tool is designed only for highly-prevalent attacks. This month two new families of malware were added to the tool's detections: Win32/Filcout and Win32/Miuref.
Note: We tested Windows Update on Windows XP and it downloaded and ran the new version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool, so Microsoft has not abandoned Windows XP users there.
