Microsoft will issue 11 security bulletins in next week's Patch Tuesday 
to fix 25 vulnerabilities in Windows, Microsoft Office, and Exchange, 
including two holes for which exploit code is in the wild.

Five of the bulletins address critical vulnerabilities that could allow 
an attacker to take control of the computer, five are rated important, 
and one is rated moderate.

With the updates, Microsoft will be closing two outstanding security 
advisories that have been worrisome because code to exploit the 
vulnerabilities is available publicly.

One of the advisories is 981169, which involves a vulnerability in
