Patch Tuesday to bring wide-ranging updates

By

Microsoft is preparing to release seven security bulletins this week, covering all supported versions of Windows, plus Microsoft Office and Silverlight.

Of the seven security bulletins Microsoft has foreshadowed for this month's Patch Tuesday, three of them are considered critical for at least one of the affected products. The others have a maximum rating of important.

Windows 7, Vista, XP, Server 2003 and Server 2008 all have two critical patches this month, and all but XP and Server 2003 have another two that are rated important.

In addition, the company plans to release four bulletins, at least one of which applies to every currently supported version of Office, including Office 2008 and 2011 for Mac. Visio Viewer 2010 (32-bit) and 2011 (64-bit) are also being patched.

Critical updates for Silverlight 4 and 5 are also planned.
