Microsoft patches more security holes
Microsoft on Wednesday issued a pair of security alerts addressing potential flaws that could make its software vulnerable to attackers.
The higher-rated of the two bulletins includes a patch that fixes four separate vulnerabilities in Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) software.
