    MS15-018 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3032359)
    This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer.

    This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Exchange Server. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if a user clicks a specially crafted URL that takes them to a targeted Outlook Web App site. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit a specially crafted website.

    I always install right off...I use Defender and have as little 3rd party software as possible on my system, so very little to no chance of problems. BUT I also wait 2-3 weeks before I use Disk Cleanup and clean Windows Updates out in case I have to revert or uninstall.
