Microsoft to Issue Three Security Updates Next Week

Microsoft said today it plans next week to release three free software updates to fix security holes in its products, including two vulnerabilities in Windows and another in its Exchange Server corporate e-mail product..

At least one, possibly both, of the Windows patches will carry a "critical" rating -- Redmond's most severe. Microsoft considers a flaw "critical" if the vulnerability could be used by attackers, viruses or worms to seize control over a targeted computer without any action on the part of the victim. The Exchange patch also will come with a "critical" label.

Microsoft will issue the updates at some point on Tuesday afternoon. As usual, Security Fix will have more details about them as soon as they're released.
