Microsoft's Patch Tuesday this month will be a big one:  10 bulletins fixing 34 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office and Internet Explorer.

Three of the 10 bulletins will be rated "critical," Microsoft's highest severity rating.  The flaws addressed in those bulletins typically expose users to remote code execution attacks.

Here are the basic details on what's coming next Tuesday (June 8, 2010):follow Ryan Naraine on twitter

  • Six of the bulletins affect Windows; of those, two carry a Critical severity rating and four are rated Important.

  • One bulletin, again with a severity rating of Important, affects both Windows and Office.
  • One bulletin, with a severity rating of Critical, affects Internet Explorer.\

    Not bad. Just 34 flaws that can't be exploited now. I'm glad they release notices like this, I'm going to update our team so they can be prepared for it and know when to patch instead of taking wild guesses at when a patch is released like in other operating systems. Plan accordingly.

      @Loverock Davidson. Ummmmm who knows how long these have been issues. You are just finding out about them now. They could of been in the wild for months. On other OS's I don't have to wait till patch Tuesday to get my patches. They are fixed and pushed out to me as soon as a fix is ready. Not 3 weeks later.

      • If you spent as much time using an OS.....

        you could have written your own OS by now and you'd realize that the love of your life, Linux has more fixes than this each and every month. Sometimes daily.
        I've never had a virus with Windows and have used it since 3.0.
        Windows 7 has been deemed by a vast number of security professionals to be the most secure OS available, by far, yet people like you have to dredge up the past.
        You know, the 2001 version of any Linux based OS was crap. You know that, right? Totally unusable, totally void of drivers and software. It was garbage.
        Windows 7 now, once again, destroys Linux and you don't like it, for whatever petty little ego related reason, who would know.
        I have tried Ubuntu but I can't deal with daily updates. No OS should be that full of holes and bugs.
        Windows NT 6.x has averaged well under 10 patchds per month. It totally puts OS X and Linux to shame.

        I'm not Loverock, but you should look at your own question. You don't know how long they existed either. But, that did not stop you from coming here to try and trash Microsoft. At least Loverock was contributing to the story. Kudos to Loverock; wet, soggy nootles to you.
        Smile!

        If they were in the wild they would have been found by now. Having a scheduled patch time is ideal for system administrators, there is no guessing when patches will be available causing long periods of downtime during work hours. On a scheduled patch release you can work it into the maintenance window avoiding downtime. Sorry but your fix and push just isn't the proper way to do it.

      @Loverock Davidson - Your team ? Is that the team that discovered how Linux keeps the telnet port open ?

      • RE: Patch Tuesday heads-up: 10 bulletins, 34 flaws (IE, Windows affected)

        @dev/null

        No, that's the team that spends most of its time putting out fires because (l)users at his WROK PALCE keep on getting infected.

        Not put make light of the stresses our men and women in the military face while deployed; but, as a sysadmin, I am tired of being `shot at` by malware.

        I am so glad our company is making a transition toward Linux for the vast majority of our employees. It is so enjoyable to put in a Live CD, and watch a Windoze system get `nuked from orbit`.

        At least our IT team can do something productive!!!!

        The team I work with. When your good at IT like I am you have open communications to keep the company running smoothly. But I wouldn't expect you to know anything about that.

        @bfilipiak
        Our team puts out fires? Really? Do tell because we don't have these occurrences unless its its a hardware issue. Also tell us what we were infected with because our logs show nothing of the sort. You shouldn't make false claims like you being an administrator. If you really were one you wouldn't be moving people to linux (which no one believes anyway) and you'd know how to put proper security measures in place to prevent malware that you supposedly are getting shot at. Nothing worse than a band of linux liars trying to make others look bad.

    • Sadly I no longer receive updates for that other operating system.

      @Loverock Davidson: [i]I'm going to update our team so they can be prepared for it and know when to patch instead of taking wild guesses at when a patch is released like in other operating systems.[/i]

      Despite the fact it's not even four years old yet (well, technically it's four years old but the system I bought which shipped with it is less than four years old).
