Microsoft Security Patch Release October 2010 Advance Notification

Microsoft have released their Advance Notification for their Security Bulletin release scheduled for October. This month, 16 bulletins are being released, covering Windows, Internet Explorer, Office, and the .NET Framework.

Despite the large number scheduled for release, only four of the bulletins are expected to attract a Critical rating, ten Important, and the remaining two Moderate. The four Critical bulletins target Windows and Internet Explorer product lines and are for Remote Code Execution vulnerabilities. Some of the remaining Important bulletins are also for remote code execution vulnerabilities, but the conditions for execution are expected to be more restrictive, warranting the lower rating.
