Microsoft to issue 6 bulletins for July patch Tuesday

Microsoft on Tuesday will issue six security bulletins for patch Tuesday reports PC Magazine.

Among these bulletins will be a DirectShow vulnerability issued in May, and possibly a zero-day vulnerability that was discovered this week.

As stated in an advanced warning in a Microsoft blog, three of these bulletins affect Windows. The other 3 affect a vulnerability in Publisher 2007, one in ISA (Internet Security and Acceleration) Server 2006, and one in several current versions of Virtual PC and Virtual server.

An update will also be out for Malicious Software Removal Tool and the Windows Mail junk filter. There will also be an update for Windows Vista that should fix intermittent failures experienced by users that have a Bluetooth radio connected to a USB 2.0 hub.

We've previously reported about a serious Internet Explorer exploit that was discovered this week. There is still no update on a patch to fix it, and as stated in the report, a patch could take months to be ready. Meanwhile, users of both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 can enable or disable a temporary workaround.
