Microsoft has released the advance notification for their January Patch Tuesday updates. In an unusual, but not unprecedented development, none are rated critical. There are also only 4 updates to be released.
Bulletin 1 affects all supported versions of Microsoft Word and the Word Viewers. Bulletin 2 affects only Windows XP SP3 and Windows Server 2003 SP2. [UPDATE: Bulletin 2 addresses a vulnerability which had, in November, been reported as being exploited in the wild.]
Bulletin 3 affects Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Bulletin 4 affects all supported versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX.
This will be the first month since September 2011 that Microsoft has released no critical updates in a Patch Tuesday cycle, and the first since September 2012 that they have released 4 or fewer updates.
As usual, Microsoft will also release a new version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and potentially non-security updates to products.
