The four updates detailed in the advance notice published today will quash bugs in Internet Explorer 7 (IE7); its Exchange mail server software; the Visio application that's part of the Office line-up; and SQL Server. The IE and Exchange vulnerabilities will be labeled critical, the company's highest threat ranking, while the SQL Server and Visio bugs will be marked as "important," one step lower.
Microsoft will release the updates on Feb. 10.
