Microsoft to release six patches on Tuesday

Posted on Monday, November 13 2006 @ 00:29:24 CET by

On Tuesday we can expect six new security updates from Microsoft, InformationWeek reports.
In the advance notification posted on its Web site mid-morning Thursday, Microsoft said it would release five updates for Windows and one targeting XML Core Services. At least two of the updates will be labeled "critical," Microsoft's highest warning rating.

Typically, the Redmond, Wash. developer doesn't disclose the exact components, services, or applications to be patched prior to delivering the updates on the second Tuesday of each month. But the fix for Microsoft XML Core Services, a flaw that's currently being attacked by hackers, was specifically called out in the advance alert.

Last weekend, Microsoft acknowledged that a bug in an ActiveX component of Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 was being exploited; in a blog entry, a Microsoft Security Response Center program manager characterized the attacks as "limited."
