August will be another substantial patch month for Microsoft, with the vendor releasing 12 security bulletins next Tuesday to fix holes in both its Windows OS and the Office productivity suite.
Ten of the August 8 patches will affect Windows, with at least one rated as a "critical" update. The other two security updates, at least one of which also is rated "critical," affect Office. Critical flaws are those than can be exploited by attackers to run unauthorized code on a PC without any user action.
The patches, some of which will require a restart, will be released as part of Microsoft's regularly scheduled monthly security update, which security researchers call "Patch Tuesday."
