It is almost that day and in anticipation of patch Tuesday, Microsoft has published their day's menu for us.
We've got four new bulletins coming out with a top severity of Critical and a requirement for rebooting.

Of note is the news that they will also be releasing a number of high priority non-security updates as well though no further information is available till next week.

Symantec and Viruslist.com have write-ups on a new virus that infects iPods running Linux. According to Symantec infects anything in the /usr/lib with "mod.so" in the filename. It also displays a simple message letting you know you are infected (a nice screen shot of this on the Viruslist page). Kinda novel. :)
