malicious code and access sensitive information on victims' machines.

Affected products range from Office to multiple versions of Windows, including Vista, and according to the advance bulletin Microsoft released on 5 July , three of the updates will be rated critical, two important and one as moderate.

All the critical updates are for remote execution flaws and affect Windows, Office, Excel and the .Net Framework. The two important updates will fix remote code execution flaws in Windows XP Professional, Office and Publisher, and the one moderate bulletin will fix an information disclosure flaw in Vista.

As it does every month, Microsoft will also update its Malicious Software removal tool and hold a Webcast Wednesday at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. Microsoft will also release five non-security, high-priority updates.
