Microsoft to issue four security patches - SQL Server and Exchange in frame

Microsoft will issue four security patches next week to address vulnerabilities in the SQL Server database platform, the Exchange e-mail server and the Windows operating system.

The four patches will be distributed tomorrow (8 July) as part of Microsoft's monthly security patching schedule.

None of the patches though have been deemed as "critical" by Microsoft, with all four being labelled as "important".

A critical patch is more urgent as remote attackers can take advantage of the vulnerability with no user interaction.

Firms will therefore have a bit more time next week to put the important patches in place.
