The January 2015 edition of Microsoft Patch Tuesday contains no fixes for the Microsoft Explorer browser.

According to PC World, to date, almost every Patch Tuesday has come with a fix for Explorer, which has long been a target for abuse by malicious attackers. Wolfgang Kandek, chief technology officer of security vendor Qualys, said that the lack of fixes for IE was surprising, adding that the one common feature in every Patch Tuesday was that Internet Explorer would get patched.

All the patches issued for Tuesday focused on vulnerabilities found either in the desktop or server editions of its Windows operating system .
