Micosoft’s March 2020 Patch Tuesday released saw the company rollout patches for 115 vulnerabilities with 26 rated critical, however, in a rare event Adobe is taking this month off publicizing no updates.

This is the second month in a row that Microsoft has busy Patch Tuesday. In February the company patched 99 vulnerabilities, including one zero day. One analyst piggy-backed on to today’s roll out to note that a vulnerability included in February’s release, CVE-2020-0688, is being actively exploited in the wild and even though a large number of new updates have been issued, admins should prioritize taking care of his older CVE if they have not done so already.

The critical issues fixed by Microsoft this month include 58 elevation of privilege flaws with Satnam Narang, principal research engineer at Tenable listing CVE-2020-0788, CVE-2020-0877 and CVE-2020-0887 as the most severe. Microsoft agrees listing them as most likely to be exploited.
