Additionally, note that the November security release consists of 53 security updates in which 20 are listed as Critical, 30 are rated Important and 3 rated as Moderate and address Remote Code Execution, Information Disclosure, "Defense in Depth" (Note:  "Defense-in-Depth" is a fix that does not apply to an actively exploitable vulnerability but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code when surrounding code changes expose the problem.), Denial of Service, Security Feature Bypass, Spoofing and Elevation of Privilege.
