After the last minute issue that resulted in the postponement of the February updates, security updates have been released for March.

Although this was to be the start of replacing security bulletins with the new Security Updates Guide, security bulletins were also published this month to provide extra time to prepare for the transition. The new guide includes the ability to view and search security vulnerability information in a single online database. The guide is described as a "portal" by the MSRC Team in Furthering our commitment to security updates.

Microsoft released seventeen (17) bulletins.  Nine (9) bulletins are identified as Critical and eight (8) rated Important in severity. The updates address vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, Skype for Business, Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Silverlight, Microsoft Server Software, Microsoft Communications Platforms and Software, Microsoft Exchange and Adobe Flash Player for Windows 8.1 and above.

Addressed in the updates are Remote Code Execution, Information Disclosure and Elevation of Privilege.
