The Internet Explorer bulletin is rated "critical" and should be considered a high-priority update because of the risk of code execution attacks via drive-by downloads.

According to an advance notice from Microsoft, most of the updates will require a restart once the patches are applied.

The nine bulletins will be releaed on Tuesday, February 14 at approximately 10 a.m. PST.
