Critical Windows Patch Around The Corner
Microsoft's advance notice of coming patches includes six plugs for Windows and something extra.
As part of its Thursday ritual of letting customers know what's on tap for its once-a-month patch schedule, Microsoft said it plans six patches for next Tuesday, Aug. 9, for Windows versions. The highest Maximum Severity rating for these is Critical, it added.
In addition, Microsoft plans to release an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool via its Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services and its Download Center. However, the tool will not be distributed using Software Update Services (SUS).
Microsoft also said it will release one non-security but high-priority update via these same delivery channels.
Last month's patches included fixes for three critical vulnerabilities in Windows and for Microsoft Word.
