Microsoft to issue three security patches on Tuesday (12 July)

Antony Savvas

Microsoft will release three patches for its Windows and Office software platforms on Tuesday (12 July 2005) as part of its monthly patching cycle.

One of the Windows fixes has been deemed as “critical” by Microsoft, as is patch affecting Office. 

Such a rating usually means that remote hackers could completely take over a user’s machine without any user interaction, unless the patch is installed.

The notice did not specify whether one of the patches will address a flaw in the Internet Explorer browser, which Microsoft recently provided a workaround for.

There will also be a “high-priority” update for the Office suite of products, which is unrelated to security.
