Microsoft to release 14 security bulletin updates on Sept. 10th

Microsoft is making preparations for its regular monthly Patch Tuesday software update event, which this month will happen on September 10th. However, the company will be releasing a lot more security bulletins than normal next week.

Today, the company released a summary of the bulletins it will release in five days, revealing there will be a total of 14 security updates, which is the most that Microsoft has released in one month so far in 2013 (February came in second with 12 security updates). Four of the bulletins are labeled as "Critical" while the other 10 have been given the "Important" designation.

As usual, today's summaries does not go into any specifics behind these updates so that hackers don't get too much information on the patches before they are released. However, the summaries do indicate that the four "Critical" bulletins will be released to fix issues in various versions of Windows, Outlook, SharePoint and Internet Explorer.

Next week's Patch Tuesday event will come less than seven months before Microsoft cuts off all public support for Windows XP. Microsoft has already warned that after the cut off date of April 8th, 2014, it will leave the 12 year old operating system with "zero day" bugs forever; Five of next week's security bulletins fix issues in Windows XP.

Yay!

More than likely another 4-6 updates for that .Net crap!! Man, I not only hate that .Net crap but the updates are even worse!

I see there is only 1 update for .Net. Still stinks!

That was one good thing about XP at least, Never had to install that junk!

And Java a or Flash is any better..... Please do not mention Linux or Unix being secured either.

And you can not do with XP what you can do with 7/8. Please join the 21 Century.

Eh most of them go very quickly, it's just the major updates that require a big rebuild that take a while.. usually not so bad.

Unless you ran one of the many programs than use it... nowadays that's quite a lot.
