Microsoft has released the security bulletins for January. The details are available at http://blogs.technet.com/b/msrc/archive/2015/01/13/january-2015-updates.aspx
There are a total of eight security bulletins released for January.
Only one patch is designated as CRITICAL. The remaining seven patches are designated as IMPORTANT. The one critical patch applies to telnet. By default, telnet is installed but not enabled on Windows 2003 server installations. The telnet service is not installed on Windows Vista and later (including Server versions) operating systems.
All of the IMPORTANT patches apply to Windows operating systems only and are limited to either Elevation Of Privilege (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-001, https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-003 , https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-004 and https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-008 ), Security Feature bypass (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-005 and https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-006) or Denial of Service (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-007 ) exploits.
Adobe also released a patch for Flash on January 13. The details are available at http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb15-01.html
The current version of Adobe Flash is 126.96.36.1997. Users of Adobe Air should update to version 188.8.131.52. Adobe flash for Google Chrome and Internet Explorer on Windows 8 should also update to version 184.108.40.2067.
Based on the information currently available, the AgriLife ISO recommended patch deployment priority is limited to Windows Server 2003 systems that have telnet enabled. For workstations, only the Adobe flash patch includes a recommendation to patch as soon as possible. There currently is no urgency identified in patches associated with Microsoft supported products for workstations in the January updates.
