Heavy Patch Tuesday on Tap for Next Week

Security administrators in charge of networks of Microsoft systems will be busy next Tuesday.

Microsoft on Thursday sent out its monthly advisory about the security bulletins that will be released on the second Tuesday of the month (Patch Tuesday, which this month falls on Dec. 13).

The list includes 14 security bulletins, three of them rated "critical" and 11 of them "important." The three critical bulletins, warning of remote code execution vulnerabilities, affect most supported versions of Windows. The important bulletins cover Windows, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft PowerPoint and Internet Explorer, among other products.
