8 security fixes next Tuesday

Posted by bink on December 5 2008, 2:33 AM. Posted in Security.

As part of our regularly scheduled bulletin release, we're currently planning to release eight security bulletins:

  • Six Microsoft Security Bulletins rated as Critical and two rated as Important. These updates may require a restart and will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

As we do each month, the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool will be updated.

We are also planning to release high-priority, non-security updates on Windows Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) as well as high-priority, non-security updates on Microsoft Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). For additional information, please see the Other Information section of the Advanced Notification.

I also want to note that we have simplified the Executive Summary of the Advance Notification to make it easier to quickly get a high level view of the notification. 

As always, we'll be holding the December edition of the monthly security bulletin webcast on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008 at 11 a.m., Pacific Standard Time.  We will review this month's release and take your questions live on-air with answers from our panel of experts. As a friendly reminder, if you can't make the live webcast, you can listen to it on-demand as well at the same URL. In addition, we'll also be posting the text of the questions and answers from each month's webcast. You can see a full listing of the posted questions and answers on this page.
