Microsoft, in keeping with its usual schedule, has released its Security Bulletin Advanced Notification for the security patches it intends to release next Tuesday, August 10. This month there are 14 fixes to be released, setting a new record. All supported versions of Windows are affected, and each version has vulnerabilities rated Critical. There are also fixes for Microsoft Office (including the Mac versions), and for Microsoft Silverlight The following table gives the breakdown by version:
|Windows XP +SP3||7||2||—|
|Windows Server 2003||4||2||1|
|Windows Server 2008||2||4||1|
|Windows Server 2008 R2||2||3||2|
|Silverlight v. 2 & 3||1||—||—|
Most of these patches will probably require a system reboot after installation. Of course, the details are subject to change between now and the patch release date.
As usual, I will post an update here once the patches have been released on Tuesday.
