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.
