Microsoft will issue 14 security bulletins on Tuesday to plug 34 holes — including eight that are critical — in Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, SQL and Silverlight, the company said on Thursday.
"This will be the most bulletins we have ever released in a month; we have released 13 bulletins on a couple of occasions," Angela Gunn, security response communications manager at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post. "However, in total CVE [common vulnerabilities and exposures] count, this release ties with June 2010, so there's no new record there."
"Windows XP SP2 users do not have any patches supplied to them, even though the five critical vulnerabilities for XP SP3 most likely apply to their discontinued version of the OS as well," he said. "Windows XP SP2 users should upgrade to SP3 as quickly as possible."
