MS Patch Tuesday heads-up: 22 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office

July 7, 2011

Quote:
Microsoft today announced plans to patch 22 serious security vulnerabilities in its Windows operating system and Office productivity suite.

As part of the July Patch Tuesday releases, Microsoft will ship four bulletins. One of the bulletins will carry a “critical” rating because of a high risk of remote code execution attacks.

Three of the four bulletins will address security holes in Windows, the company’s flagship operating system. Affected Windows versions include Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

The Microsoft Office update will ship patches for security problems in Microsoft Visio 2003 Service Pack 3.

The bulletins are slated for release on July 12th at 10:00 a.m. PDT.

Sigh ... guess I need to put aside some extra time - again. I install just a few updates at a time, never all at once.

Thanks for the heads up.

I do the same thing when it comes to a lot of updates, I do a few at a time.

I also like to wait a day or 2 before I apply them and keep my eyes peeled for articles saying any of them are causing problems.

I just installed MS Office H&S yesterday morning. By lunch time there was about 400Mb of updates waiting.

Humm... "22 serious security vulnerabilities in its Windows operating system and Office productivity suite." That's for all operating systems...

I guess for Windows 7 that will be only 3 security bulletins + 1 malicious software removale tool + 1 MS office...

Well, they're most welcome for Tuesday patch as they're Elevation of Privilege & Remote Code Execution!!

Update errors

Hi forum

I just tried to do the updates in today's Patch Tuesday distrib. I found that, if I tried to install all together, I got failed updates, with a reversion during system restart.

I found that doing one (KB2507938) on its own & restarting, the others then installed successfully.

May have been a glitch but it did fail twice.

Win 7 64 bit.

Hope that helps some folk.

I didn't face exactly the same but nearly...one of those updates stopped most of the apps loaded at start-up, making the machine to believe it failed to install but saw all was install afterward.
The Reliability Index Score told me it stopped at the same time of Windows Update which make a huge breakdown in the R.I.S..

Of course at reboot all went fine again, rebooted it twice to be sure it works.
