Neowin writes this month's edition of Patch Tuesday (February 11) will feature five bulletins; two critical updates and three rated as important:
Of the two "critical" patches, Microsoft's summary page says that one of them affects Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, 8/8.1, Server 2012/2012 R2 and RT/RT 8.1. The other "critical" update is just for one program, Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server. The three "important" updates are for all currently supported versions of Windows, including Windows XP. As we have reported extensively, Microsoft plans to cut off all software updates to XP on April 8. As usual, Microsoft does not offer any details of what these patches are designed to fix in these early summary reports, in order not to tip off hackers ahead of time.
