Microsoft is to release a single security patch tomorrow as part of its monthly patching cycle.
The patch to the Windows operating system has been given a maximum security rating of “critical” by Microsoft, meaning that un-patched machines could lay themselves open for remote attack without any user interaction as a result of the Windows security flaw to be reported by Microsoft.

But the 8 November patch release will be less of a busy day than last month’s “Patch Tuesday”, when Microsoft released nine security patches to its software.
Microsoft also added that on the same day it will release two non-security-related but “high-priority” Windows software updates via its Microsoft Update (MU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) download channels.
In addition, the company will release another non-security but high-priority Windows patch via its Windows Update (WU) and Software Update Services channels.
Microsoft does not release any further details about security vulnerabilites ahead of planned patch releases.
