Microsoft Patch Tuesday Preview, September 2011

In line with its usual schedule, Microsoft today released its Security Bulletin Advanced Notification for September, previewing the security bulletins and associated patches that it plans to release next Tuesday, September 13.  This month, Microsoft intends to release five bulletins, all with a severity rating of Important.  Two of the bulletins are for Windows itself,although one appears to affect only server versions; all supported versions of Windows are affected.  The remaining three bulletins are for Microsoft Office (including Office for Mac), and for associated server software, such as SharePoint server, Forms server, and Groove server.

Microsoft’s announcement says that one of the Windows patches will definitely require a system restart; the others may require a restart, depending on your system’s configuration.

As always, this information is subject to change between now and the actual release of the bulletins next Tuesday.  I will post a note here once the actual updates are available.
