Microsoft Security Patch Advance Notification - May 2008

As the second Tuesday of the month will be with us next week, Microsoft have provided advance notice of the patches that they expect to release on that day.

This month there are four patches scheduled for release, three Critical patches, and one Moderate. The three Critical patches address remote code execution risks in Office (2) and Windows (1), with the Moderate patch addressing a Denial of Service vulnerability affecting Windows Live OneCare, Microsoft Antigen, Microsoft Windows Defender, and Microsoft Forefront Security. It is important to note for OS X users that Microsoft will be issuing Critical updates for Office 2004 and 2008.

What is probably most surprising is the patch to be released for the Microsoft Jet Database Engine, a technology which was widely reported that it would not be receiving any further updates from Microsoft.
