now that we have a look at some of the vulnerabilities patched, let us take a look at the relevance of each patch, and more importantly, the cost to patch. while there is no shortage of vulnerabilities patched by microsoft, as we mentioned above, these vulnerabilities are rarely exploited and are rather low on the magnitude of issue.
three of the vulnerabilities patched were rated as moderate, and as we saw above, all remain unpatched and open to exploitation. the cost to patch these and the other 60 vulnerabilities patched remain relatively small, generally coming in around $200 to $400 per vulnerability.
