On Tuesday, February 12, 2013, Microsoft is planning to release twelve (12) bulletins addressing twelve (57) vulnerabilities.
Five bulletins are identified as Critical and address vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer and Exchange Software. The seven remaining bulletins are rated Important and will address issues in Microsoft Windows, Office, .NET Framework, and Microsoft Server Software.
In the event you have had problems installing .NET Framework updates in the past, please consider installing those updates separately with a shutdown/restart included, regardless of whether or not it is required.
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.
