As part of its regular monthly update cycle, Microsoft plans to release five security fixes next Tuesday, of which at least two would be rated "critical."
Four patches would be aimed at Microsoft Windows, while the remaining fix would be a critical patch for Microsoft Content Management Server. Still unpatched is a code-execution hole in Microsoft Word that the Redmond company has known about since mid-February. That bug, along with a PowerPoint bug reported to Microsoft in July 2005 still remain unpatched, according to security firm FrSIRT. Aside from the security patches, two non-security updates would be issued through Windows Update, and four through Microsoft Update.
