On Tuesday, May 8, 2012, Microsoft is planning to release seven (7) bulletins, of which three bulletins are identified as Critical and the remaining four as Important.
The bulletins address twenty-three (23) vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Office, Silverlight, and .NET Framework. At least two of the updates will require a restart. If you have had difficulties with .NET Framework in the past, it is strongly advised that update be installed separately.
As happens each month, Microsoft will also release an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool on Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services, and the Download Center.
