Microsoft returns to patching for June security update

Microsoft is expecting to announce a slew of patches for security flaws in its monthly update next Tuesday.

Following last month’s lull, which was clear of critical updates, 14 June will see Redmond’s Windows product range subject to seven patches. The most severe is rated as Critical and some will mean computers need to be restarted.

Microsoft’s products for the Unix platform will also be subject to a further patch, rated as Moderate. Exchange too gets an ‘Important’ patch – usually indicating there are mitigating factors that affect a flaw that would otherwise be considered Critical.

Internet Security and Acceleration and Small Business servers also receive a Moderate patch.

The patches number 10 in total, but each can cover a multitude of flaws or stand as cumulative patches for a given product.

Full details of the update will be revealed next Tuesday.
