Microsoft To Patch Critical Holes In Windows, Office

Via TechWeb News.

Microsoft will post three security bulletins, two for Windows and one for Office, next week, the software giant announced on Thursday. Two of the trio will be tagged as "critical," Microsoft's most dire threat label.

As it's done since November, 2004, Microsoft gave users and enterprises a bit of early warning by publishing its monthly Security Bulletin Advance Notification on its Web site and via e-mail.

Microsoft doesn't disclose details of the specific vulnerabilities for which patches will be released, so it's unknown if one of the two Windows bulletins will include a fix for the recently disclosed Internet Explorer bug.

The bulletins will also include one for Office that Microsoft characterized as a "non-security, high priority update."

The security bulletins will be published to Microsoft's Security siteTuesday, July 12 sometime after noon EDT.
