Microsoft is releasing four security patches tomorrow, with at least two of them deemed “critical” by the company.

There will be one patch for the Windows operating system, with this patch being critical, said the firm.

In addition, there will be three patches to fix problems in the Office productivity suite.

At least one of these patches is critical, although Microsoft would not confirm the number of critical fixes in this batch.

Critical patches are those addressing security problems that allow remote attackers to take over users’ systems without any user interaction.

There will also be two non-security “high priority” updates distributed by the firm.
