Microsoft to release 11 patches next week

Ye olde software maker Microsoft has sent out word that next week, on April's Patching Tuesday, it will deliver 11 updates which are meant to resolve a total of 25 vulnerabilities, some disclosed, but mostly (thankfully) still under wraps. One of the fixes, rated 'important', will tackle a DoS (Denial of Service) issue found in Exchange Server (2000, 2003, 2007 & 2010), while two will 'handle' problems within Office XP, 2003 and 2007.

The bulk of releases - one 'moderate', three 'important' (including the Exchange one), and five 'critical' are set to fix vulnerabilities in Windows operating systems that could lead to spoofing, DoS attacks, and remote code execution. The affected OS list includes Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003 and Server 2008 (R2) so be sure to update on Tuesday.

only 3 (2 critical, one moderate) of the 11 are applicable to Windows 7. Most of them (10 each) are for XP and Windows 2000.

Thanks for clearing that up. I thought 11 was a bit much

I, for one, am pleased beyond what I thought possible with Windows 7 performance. I had one glitch with my audio drivers but that was a quick fix from Creative Labs.........I love my Windows 7

Now, there's two words you normally don't see in the same sentence - "Creative" and "quick"

I was a "fan" of Creative once upon a time but not any more. Yet another company who has gone too far with their "added extras"
