10 Patches Coming This Tuesday

Microsoft has sent out notice to expect ten new patches this Patch Tuesday, seven for Windows and at least one of which merits a “critical” rating, as well as the now ever-present update to the virus removal tool.

From CRN:

As is its custom, Microsoft gave advance notice of the number, highest severity, and target of the patches it plans to post Tuesday, June 14. Of the ten bulletins, seven affect Windows, and one each impacts Microsoft Services for UNIX, Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server and the associated Small Business Server.

Here’s most of the text of the security notification email:

As part of the monthly security bulletin release cycle, Microsoft provides advance notification to our customers on the number of new security updates being released, the products affected, the aggregate maximum severity and information about detection tools relevant to the update.

On 14 June 2005 the Microsoft Security Response Center is planning to release:
