Critical Windows Patch Coming Next Week

Microsoft will release just one software update next week to plug a critical flaw in computers running its Windows operating system, the company said today. Redmond rates patches "critical" if they close a security hole that attackers could use to break in and take over vulnerable Windows machines.

Security Fix will have more details on the patch when it is issued on Tuesday. In the meantime, if you'd rather not have to worry about remembering to visit Microsoft's update site next week, you can enable automatic updates on your computer (this option is available for Windows Server 2003, Windows XP and Windows 2000 systems.)
