Security Bulletin Advance Notification for April, 2011

On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, Microsoft is planning to release seventeen (17) security bulletins, nine (9) rated Critical and eight (8) rated Important. The bulletins will address 64 vulnerabilities across Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Visual Studio, .NET Framework and GDI+. 

Although it is advised to restart your computer after installing updates, whether required or not, a number of the scheduled bulletins will require a restart in order to install the updates.  I recommend installing the update to .NET Framework separately as well as other updates requiring a restart.

Microsoft is also planning a fix for the MHTML vulnerability in Windows, rated Important, based on Security Advisory 2501696.


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
