Microsoft to Issue Seven Patches Next Week

Microsoft will release seven security updates next Tuesday to plug security holes in its various Windows operating systems and other software, the company said today.

The company said it will issue four patches for Windows, at least one of which will earn Redmond's most serious "critical" rating, meaning hackers, viruses and other badware could exploit the flaw to break into affected computers.

"Black Tuesday" also will bring a critical patch for Microsoft's Windows Media Player, as well as two updates for Microsoft Office.

As always, Security Fix will have more details once Microsoft issues the patches.
