Microsoft Plans Critical Patches For Office, Windows
Microsoft plans on releasing two critical security bulletins for its May 11 Patch Tuesday update, plugging critical holes in Windows and Office.
Both updates repair two critical vulnerabilities -- one affecting Windows and the other in Microsoft Office -- which can leave users susceptible to remote code execution attacks.
The patch will also be available to both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, although neither are affected by the critical vulnerabilities addressed in the May patch.
Microsoft, however, will not be releasing a patch this month for a recently detected security flaw in its Sharepoint Server and SharePoint Service.
