Windows 8.1 will get the security updates next week

Patch Tuesday is just around the corner. There are a total of eight patches for Windows, Internet explorer, .NET framework which will be delivered to all the users by October 8.

It also contains the patch for the exploit which went unpatched on the last Patch Tuesday by mistake. Users will get the updates automatically via Windows update. Microsoft is aware that many of the people are running Windows 8.1 RTM  which was released on TechNet and MSDN. Therefore they are patching the latest OS out there so that it comes out with full security on October 18th.
Also they have to test these updates before they release to the public because they have been releasing botched updates which crashed many PC's lately.
