Microsoft to release seven patches in July update


With online attackers taking advantage of holes in its Office software, Microsoft Corp. plans to release seven software patches next week.

Four of the updates will fix bugs in Windows while another three will address flaws in Microsoft Office, Microsoft said in a notice on its Web site. Both sets of patches will address critical flaws, which attackers could exploit to run unauthorized code on a PC without any user action.

The patches will be released on July 11 as part of Microsoft's regularly scheduled monthly security updates. Microsoft to release seven patches in July update
