Microsoft will issue its scheduled monthly patch this week, aimed at solving a critical security issue for the Office suite, as well as releasing an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

The Office security update will involve patches that are likely to require restarting users’ systems, Microsoft said. They will be detectable with Microsoft’s Baseline Security Analyser and the Enterprise Scanning Tool. The updates coming with the bulletin on Windows will not require a restart, according to the advisory. They will be detectable with the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyser.

Microsoft will distribute its updated version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool via Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services and the Download Centre.

More details can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/advance.mspx
with Microsoft promising a webcast this week to address users’ queries on the updates.

A quiet week on the Microsoft security front for once, probably because the company is gearing itself towards a series of forthcoming launches, notably Vista with all its inherent security features.
