Microsoft Logo Microsoft has announced that it will release 13 security bulletins on this month's Patch Tuesday, 9 August, to close a total of 22 holes in its products. Among them is a critical vulnerability in all versions of Internet Explorer and a critical bug in most editions of Windows Server; both holes allow an attacker to remotely inject code into a victim's system.

The remaining bulletins, rated from important to moderate, address vulnerabilities in Windows (mostly XP SP3), Office (2003 SP3 to 2010 SP1), .Net 3.5 SP1 and Visual Studio 2005 SP1. As is becoming customary, there will also be an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool released at the same time.
