Microsoft just released new patches to fix four critical vulnerabilities. The four critical bugs are as follows:

Some users have found that after updating their systems, visiting Google’s website results in a pop-up message that indicates an infection by Exploit:JS/Blacole.BW . This false positive alert comes due to a Microsoft AV signature problem. The Microsoft AV team is removing the detection from Signature. 1.119.1986.0 or higher will contain this change. To fix the issue, simply run the update from within your Microsoft Security Essentials program.
