Microsoft will issue four "critical" and three "important" security patches next Tuesday (9 October) as part of its monthly patching cycle.

The four critical patches aim to tackle threats against the Windows OS - both server and client versions, Outlook Express, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word.

Critical patches tackle threats that allow remote attackers to compromise a user's machine without any interaction on their part.

The three "important" patches address issues in the server and client versions of Windows, and Windows SharePoint.
