Collective patch for Media Player from Microsoft

Microsoft has made a patch package available for download for its Windows Media Player for the respective versions 6.4, 7.1 and 8.0 (XP). These are intended to eliminate known bugs and plug new security holes, some of which are classified as 'critical'.

In some cases, programs were simply opened unintentionally or through a combination of a special WMA file and a Internet Explorer cache, the security settings of the same have been compromised. One can only hope that the patches will keep both hackers out and Microsoft out.
