Next patch day, 8 July, looks like being fairly uneventful, with only four security updates scheduled classified as "important". At least one of the two Windows problems that are addressed allows remote code to be executed under Vista and Server 2008. We'll presumably have to wait until Tuesday to find out why this particular update is not judged to be "critical". The second Windows update protects against spoofing – the forging of any kind of information. Updates for SQL Server and Exchange are intended to eliminate an opportunity to elevate privileges without authorisation.
