Microsoft will follow last month’s record patch day with another major roll-out next Tuesday, July 11, 2006.
Microsoft says on their Security Bulletin Advance Notification site Windows users should expect to see 7 security updates: 4 will cover Windows and 3 will affect Office, the company’s industry-leading application suite. At least 2 of the 7 will be tagged as “critical,” the highest warning rank used by Microsoft.
Microsoft doesn’t disclose the exact components, services or applications to be patched prior to update delivery but both Excel and Internet Explorer have been in the news of late with multiple security vulnerabilities reported in both the spreadsheet and browser.
