Microsoft Security Patch Release March 2010 Advance Notification

In February, Microsoft released a massive thirteen security bulletins, after January's single bulletin. This month, there are only two security bulletins expected, at least according to the Advance Notification that they have released for next week's bulletins.

Both bulletins are rated as Important and are expected to address remote code execution vulnerabilities in Windows XP, Vista, 7, and Microsoft Office Excel and related components. The Office bulletin is also being made available for the OS X versions of Office, so it is important that OS X users also apply the updates when they are released next week.

The publicly disclosed vulnerability with Windows Help files and VBScript remote code execution is not expected to be patched this month, but it is possible that an out-of-cycle patch could be released to address the issue.
