Microsoft to release nine software updates next week

Microsoft usually releases new software updates for various products on the second Tuesday of each month, and August will be no exception. Today, Microsoft gave an advance alert that it will issue nine software patches for various products on Tuesday, August 14th.

In the company's security bulletin, Microsoft gives the basics for each update, which will affect Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Exchange, Microsoft Server, Internet Explorer, SQL Server and more. Of the nine software updates, five have been labeled as "critical" by Microsoft.

The company typically doesn't reveal details of what will be patches in its monthly updates until they are released. However, Computerworld.com notes that this month's update will include the first software update for any version of Exchange since December 2010; this update will affect both Exchange Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2010.

This will also be the third consecutive month that versions of Internet Explorer will receive an update. Microsoft has previously released updates for IE every other month but recently changed that stance. This particular update will cover IE6 through IE9. Paul Henry, a security and forensic analyst at Lumension, claims that this month's IE software update will fix four specific issues with the web browser.

Yeah I don't know but I think this article is referring to a functionality update, who knows!!

As long as that stupid .Net crap doesn't have any updates, I'm happy.

Still haven't figured out what I need it for and usually have it disabled, but every time their is an update for that junk, it gets re-enabled!!

In XP,
I NEVER installed it even, and EVERYTHING has always worked perfectly, just as all my Windows 7 computers have worked perfectly with it disabled.

The worst user is an uninformed but interested user, knows a little about computers - enough to be dangerous!

Seeing it you make it sound like you have been searching for a definition of what .NET actually is and what it does, but seem to somehow have neglected to simply type "what is .NET" into a search engine, I did it for you...........

There was this comic floating around the Internet about updates...

Windows user: "Meh, more updates"
Linux user: "Yay, more updates!"
Mac user: "Oooh, only $19,99"
