Of the 6 patches and fixes that will be available on Tuesday 13 November from Microsoft Windows update, 4 will be critical. It is considered Windows 8’s first official Patch Tuesday, even though this would be the fourth patch for Windows 8 since it’s release.

The newest patches will have critical security updates for Windows RT and the Surface tablets it runs on. These updates are considered critical for every Windows user whether they run XP, Vista, RT, and Windows 7 or 8. Mac OS X users who have Microsoft Office for Mac, will be receiving patches as well.

Up till now the patches for Windows 8 have been mostly resource-light, with a few minor changes to security adjustments for the Visual Studio and System Center Configuration Manager. Even though the new updates are critical the new Windows 8 is considered to be much more secure than its previous operating systems.
