Windows As promised, Microsoft on Tuesday issued nine separate security patches, fixing vulnerabilities in DirectX, Exchange, Internet Explorer, and Windows itself. Three of the fixes were deemed "critical," four "important," and two "moderate".

It's not just MS

No software is perfect, patching is a part of computers.
Have a look here http://security.linux.com/security and you will see gnu/linux has just as many security vulnerabilities.

They reason MS only release patches once a month is to make Windows administrators life easier. Apply all patches at once and then restart the servers / workstations once.
At least, that's what the MS marketing machine tells me ;)

100% bull!

FACT... Linux/UNIX has FAR, FAR less vulnerabilities than Windows.

And, when there is a vulnerability in Linux, it gets fixed right away, NOT LIKE Microsoft who feels it's better to deny guilt and put customers at risk for years before a patch is released.

Get the facts!
