10 Microsoft Patches Due Next Week

Microsoft Corp. said today that Windows users and systems administrators should be prepared for the company to release at least 10 security patches next Tuesday.

The company said as many as seven of the Windows patches could carry a "critical" rating. Fixes rated "critical" usually apply to software vulnerabilities that hackers can target to seize control of PCs running the Windows OS, usually without any action on the part of the user. Three other patches will be awarded less severe ratings.

The patches will be released sometime in the afternoon of Tuesday, June 14. And, as always, we'll have more information on them once they're released.

Here's my write-up of last month's batch of Microsoft patches.
