Nine Up for Tomorrow's Patch Tuesday

by Michael Hall

Microsoft's back with nine updates after a month off from its regular patch schedule.

After pulling back from last month's "Patch Tuesday," Microsoft says it has nine patches due tomorrow.

The company isn't saying much about the nature of the flaws its updates will address, but of potential interest to network admins will be an "important" patch to Exchange. Published reports claim Internet Explorer is also likely to be the subject of a few past-due patches to vulnerabilities previously reported by independent security firms.

In addition to the security fixes, Microsoft, updates are on tap for the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. The company said it has no plans to release any non-security high-priority updates next week on any of its update services.
