Microsoft has announced eight Security Bulletins for the coming patch day – Tuesday, 8 April. Five of the security updates close critical holes. These, according to the Advance Notification, are for Project, Windows, VBScript and Internet Explorer versions 5, 6 and 7. According to the report, all five holes make it possible for code to be injected and executed.

Three security updates are intended to eliminate less critical vulnerabilities in Windows and Visio. Windows Server 2008, which has been available since February, is in the list of affected operating systems for the first time, with two critical errors. As always, there will also be an updated version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool.
