After a record-breaking Patch Tuesday in October, November's security
update promises to be a bit lighter with six scheduled fixes, three
deemed "critical" and three "important."
This month's patch rollout is expected to have five bulletins addressing
remote code execution vulnerabilities, while the remaining fix will
address denial-of-service issues.
The first scheduled fix will be a critical bulletin affecting Vista and
Windows Server 2008. The second critical fix affects only Windows 2000.
Meanwhile, the third and final critical item involves every Windows
operating system except for Windows 7.
Microsoft expects to issue three important fixes, with the first
bulletin affecting every OS except for Vista and Windows 7. The
remaining two important fixes will address XP-based Microsoft Office
applications, including Excel, Excel Viewer for Office 2003, 2007
Microsoft Office System, and Office for Mac 2004 and 2008.
