    [news=http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/3858/microsoftlogo0gi.gif]As part of its monthly patching cycle, Microsoft on Tuesday plans to release eight security alerts for flaws in the Windows operating system.

    At least one of the alerts is deemed "critical," Microsoft's highest risk rating, the company said in a notice posted on its Web site on Thursday. Last month, Microsoft planned one critical alert for Windows, but pulled it at the 11th hour because of quality issues.

    Microsoft rates as critical any security threat that could allow a malicious Internet worm to spread without any action required on the part of the user.

    Additionally, Microsoft on Tuesday plans to release a security bulletin covering a problem related to Windows and its Exchange e-mail server, the company said. This issue is rated "important," one notch below "critical" on Microsoft's rating scale.
