Microsoft on Tuesday released as many as 9 security updates to plug at least 19 security holes in its various Windows and other software products.
Out of the 9 releases, 8 fixed some part of Windows, while the 9th fixed vulnerabilities in several programs, including Office, Visual Studio, Internet Security and Acceleration Server, ActiveX controls.
According to The Associated Press' recent report, citing an unnamed source, Internet pioneer Yahoo's board, which has been exploring several alternatives during the past week, might possibly reject Microsoft's unsolicited $44.6 billion acquisition bid on the grounds that the offer undervalues the struggling company.
According to a Tuesday announcement by Microsoft, its Windows 7 XP Mode beta, which was released three months back, has entered Release Candidate (RC) status. The Windows 7 add-on would enable users to run a virtual version of Windows XP or Vista within Windows 7 OS, provided they have the requisite hardware.
