Microsoft prepares seven patches for 20 security issues
Microsoft is prepping seven patches for release as part of next week's monthly security update.
Just one of the seven bulletins is labeled "critical" and it addresses vulnerabilities in all versions of Word, the software giant announced Thursday. The remaining patches are designated as "important," and fix flaws in Windows, Office and SQL Server.
In total, 20 bugs are scheduled to be patched, some of which are publicly known. In July, Microsoft warned about 13 vulnerabilities in Exchange and FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. The bugs actually lie in Oracle Outside In, a set of libraries that software developers use to decode hundreds of file formats. That technology ships on Exchange Server 2007 and 2010 and FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint.
