Microsoft plans 12 security updates for tuesday


Microsoft will issue 12 security bulletins next Tuesday in its monthly slate of updates the company announced Thursday, with nine aimed at Windows, two at Office, and one at Exchange. The dozen bulletins is the largest one month total since February 2005.

At least one of the Windows fixes will be marked "critical," the developer's highest threat rating, with at least one of the Office patches tagged the same way. The Exchange update will carry an "important" ranking.

Microsoft's advance notification also reminded users that an April change in Internet Explorer, but which enterprises could block with a temporary patch, will be put into force for all as of Tuesday's fixes. Microsoft plans 12 security updates for tuesday - Security - www.itnews.com.au
