Patch Tuesday: Microsoft to Patch Six Security Flaws

Ed Oswald writes in BetaNews:

Microsoft on Thursday gave advance notice of the patches it intends to release as part of its monthly security bulletin. Six patches will be issued for August, with at least one of them deemed "critical" - the highest rating given by Microsoft. Information was not available for what the patches would address, but a serious flaw in Windows 2000 that could open systems up for attack may be fixed.

Also to be released next Tuesday is an updated version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, as well as one high-priority update that is not security related. Each month Microsoft provides advance notice of security updates that are released on the second Tuesday. Three "critical" security patches were issued in July, two for Windows and one for Office.
