Microsoft Security Patches August 2008 Advance Notice

Microsoft have provided advanced notice of the patches that they intend to release with next week's August Security patch release.

In a departure from the trend of the last few months, where only a couple of patches were released, this month Microsoft are intending to release 12 patches. Seven patches will be Critical, and the remaining five as Important.

As well as the regular Malicious Software Removal Tool update, there will be non-security, high-priority updates through Microsoft Update, Windows Update, and Windows Server Update Services.

From the Advance Notification page, the software to be affected by the Critical updates include Windows, a cumulative Internet Explorer Update, Windows Media Player, and various Office components. Software affected by the Important updates include Windows, Outlook Express, Messenger, and Word.

As with each month's security patch releases, S?nnet Beskerming will be preparing a detailed briefing pack outlining known issues affecting this month's releases.
