Big set of Microsoft security patches coming Tuesday


Microsoft plans to release 12 sets of security patches next Tuesday fixing critical vulnerabilities in a number of its products, including the company's new security software.

The bulk of the patches will fix flaws in the Windows operating system and Office, Microsoft said in a statement published Thursday on its Web site. Five of the updates will be for Windows, and two of them will be for Office. Microsoft also plans to release one less-critical update that addresses flaws in both Windows and Office.

The patches will be released as part of Microsoft's monthly cycle of security updates. Big set of Microsoft security patches coming Tuesday | InfoWorld | News | 2007-02-08 | By Robert McMillan, IDG News Service
