Microsoft Security Patch Advance Notification - November 2007

Following on from a patch released earlier this week for Windows XP and 2003 systems (Macrovision privilege escalation), Microsoft have provided advance notice of the patches that will be released next Tuesday with the November Security patch release.

This month only two patches will be released, for Microsoft Windows, with a maximum rating of Critical. Three non-security high priority updates will also be released via Microsoft Update.

If Microsoft carries the trend of issuing only a few patches into December, then they are on track to patch fewer vulnerabilities than they did last year. This is not based on the total number of patches released, but rather the number of individual vulnerabilities patched with each cycle.
