Patch Tuesday heads-up 8/9/11: Critical IE update among 13 bulletins

Quote:
Microsoft is planning a bumper Patch Tuesday for August — 13 bulletins with patches for 22 potentially dangerous security vulnerabilities.

Two of the 13 bulletins are rated “critical,” Microsoft’s highest severity rating. Microsoft Windows users will want to pay special attention to the Internet Explorer bulletin because the issues can expose users to drive-by download attacks via the browser.

The update fixes flaws that introduce remote code execution risks on all versions of Internet Explorer, including the newest IE 9, according to Microsoft’s advance notice.

This month’s patch batch will also supply fixes for holes in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, .NET and Visual Studio.

All 13 bulletins will be released on Tuesday, August 9 at approximately 1:00 PM Eastern.

They are here!

14 total and 2 are large for .Net Framework.

All installed no problems.
One at a time except for the 3 little ones I did all together.

Of the 14, the two updates for .NET, KB2468871 & KB2533523, while listed as important are not checked for me. Were they checked for you? Should I still install them?

The "Critical" updates were checked.

The "Important" updates are not checked. Your choice but I did and would install all.
