Microsoft to releases six patches this week

This week Microsoft is going to release six security updates on Tuesday.
In the advance notification posted mid-morning Thursday, Microsoft announced it would roll out five updates for Windows and one that targets Visual Studio, one of the company's development platforms. At least two of the updates will be labeled "critical," Microsoft's highest warning.

Microsoft 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 only offers clues about what it plans to fix. Some hints can be gleaned from third-party security vendors that track zero-day, or unpatched, vulnerabilities.
