June 2007 Microsoft Security Patch Advance Notification

Microsoft have provided basic details of the patches that they expect to release with the June 2007 security patch release, due for release next Tuesday.

At this stage Microsoft are expecting to release six patches for a variety of their products, including Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, and various email products.

Of the six patches, four are rated as Critical, which is Microsoft's highest vulnerability rating, with one rated as Important, and the last rated as Moderate.

Unfortunately for end users and administrators, all but one of the patch releases could lead to arbitrary remote code execution against the vulnerable software.

While Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows Vista, avoids any Critical vulnerabilities affecting the core operating system, it is affected by two Critical vulnerabilities, affecting Windows Mail and Internet Explorer.
