Upcoming MS Patch Tuesday (Aug)

Microsoft has published their Patch Tuesday advanced notice:

 www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms07-aug.mspx 

and it looks like next Tuesday will be a busy day for many with 6 critical updates and 3 rated as important.
The affected software for the critical updates include:

  •  XML core services
  •  base OS (several versions)
  •  Visual Basic
  •  Office (Mac and Windows)
  •  Internet Explorer


As always, we'll do our best to help prioritize the updates for our readers in a clear way and will keep an eye out for any issues or additional concerns that arise.

See you Tuesday.

p.s. All of the updates are listed as requiring a restart.
