Looks like Microsoft just dropped the number of planned patches from five to four.

For those keeping score at home, Redmond on Tuesday will kindly offer just one “critical” and three “important” fixes this month.

No word on why Microsoft scrapped one of the “important” patches, the one that corrected a flaw in SharePoint.

I can’t remember the last time there has been this light of a Patch Tuesday. Aren’t things supposed to drastically pick up after Labor Day? I know I’ve been singing the post-summer blues this past work week.

Take this time to work on that security project you’ve been waiting to get to.

And enjoy, as I’m sure there’s plenty more Black Tuesdays coming down the road.
