Microsoft will provide eight security patches next Tuesday, some of which are described as "critical".

The patches are part of Microsoft’s monthly security update which comes round on the second Tuesday of each month.

The company said users can expect critical fixes for Windows, the Office suite, MSN Messenger and the Exchange email server.

Microsoft will also release a new version of its online malicious software removal tool, which protects against major and known viruses.

Microsoft did not release any security patches last month.
