Microsoft to release two critical patches
Microsoft has confirmed two critical bulletins for next week’s patch Tuesday.
Next week's patch Tuesday will see Microsoft releasing two critical updates to its users.
The flaws are marked as critical for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2003 and Server 2008 users whilst Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 users are advised it is "important" to download, although they are not vulnerable.
The two bulletins one for Word and one for Windows are due on 9 May. However, the recent flaw discovered across all versions of its Internet Explorer browser, making SharePoint vulnerable, is going un-patched.
"Our teams are still working on an update for that issue," claimed Jerry Bryant, group manager of Response Communications at Microsoft, in a blog post.
"In the meantime, we recommend customers review the advisory and apply the workarounds."
This month's patch Tuesday is much smaller than the one in April which saw Microsoft fix 25 flaws across 11 patches.
