Microsoft to Issue 11 Patches Next Week
Microsoft Corp. will issue at least 11 software updates on Tuesday to fix security holes in its Windows operating system and other software products.
The company is expected to release six patches to fix flaws in Windows, and another four updates to remedy security vulnerabilities in its Microsoft Office suite. With any luck, those updates will address three separate and serious flaws that bad guys have been using over the past couple of weeks to install spyware and steal data from victims who happen to visit a maliciously crafted Web page.
The final patch will deal with a security issue in Microsoft's .NET Framework. Microsoft also says it plans to issue a pair of "non-security high priority updates."
Security Fix will have more next week on what these patches are all about and just how many individual vulnerabilities are addressed by each (a patch can fix multiple flaws, and we may be looking at a large number of them for next week's release.)
