Today Microsoft published its usual preview of the security updates it plans to release next Tuesday, September 14. The Security Bulletin Advanced Notification lists nine updates to be released this month. Four of these have a maximum severity rating of Critical, and five are rated Important. All supported versions of Microsoft Windows are affected; the breakdown by version and severity is given in the table below.
|Windows Server 2003||2||6|
|Windows Server 2008||2||3|
|Windows Server 2008 R2||—||3|
There is also one bulletin that affects Microsoft Office, with an Important rating, and one that affects Outlook, rated Critical.
Most of these updates will probably require a system reboot. As usual, the details are subject to change between now and the official release on Tuesday. I will post an update here when the final bulletin and patches are released.
