The September security release consists of 81 security updates for the  following software in which 26 are listed as Critical, 53 are rated  Important, and two are Moderate in severity.  

  • Internet Explorer
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Microsoft Windows
  • Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Services and Web Apps
  • Adobe Flash Player
  • Skype for Business and Lync
  • .NET Framework
  • Microsoft Exchange Server

The updates address Remote Code Execution, Spoofing, "Defense in Depth",  Information Disclosure and Elevation of Privilege.  "Defense-in-Depth" is a fix that does not apply to an actively  exploitable vulnerability but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by  the same code when surrounding code changes expose the problem.
