On Tuesday, July 8, 2014, Microsoft is planning to release six (6) bulletins. Two of the bulletins are identified as Critical, three as Important and one as Moderate.
The updates address vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer with the critical and important updates directed to remote code execution and elevation of priviledge. Most of the updates will require a restart.
ReminderAs has been widely publicized, support ended for Windows XP and Office 2003 on April 8, 2014. See Tim Rains article, The Risk of Running Windows XP After Support Ends April 2014. Note also that Microsoft Security Essentials will no longer be available for download for Windows XP.
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.
