Microsoft to release updates on Patch Tuesday

Microsoft is ending their year with releasing necessary software patches.

A massive Patch Tuesday update has been scheduled by Microsoft.

The company will be releasing the big end-of-year patch for vulnerability flaws in Microsoft Office, Windows, Internet Explorer, SharePoint and Exchange.

The 17 updates being released this week will address 40 such vulnerabilities. Two are rated critical, 14 are rated important and 1 is rated moderate.

In a blog post on the Microsoft Security Recovery Centre, Mike Reavey (a Director at MSRC) said that the total number of bulletins released in 2010 to address vulnerabilities have been 106, a slightly higher number than previous years.

He also said, "At the end of the day, Microsoft's primary focus is to release reliable, high-quality updates to our customers. Feedback from customers indicate that this is the most important factor in minimizing disruption and allowing them to deploy our updates quickly - even more important than the overall number of security updates."
