Patch Tuesday- updates for Windows and Mac coming

Microsoft just published their advance notice for June’s Patch Tuesday. After the rather light weight release of last month, which only addressed PowerPoint on Windows, this month’s release covers all major areas with 10 updates. Two are critical updates for Windows (out of a total of 6), there is one critical update for Internet Explorer and three critical updates for Microsoft Office.

Mac OS X users, which have seen their fair share of action recently on the OS side and with QuickTime need to pay attention as well, Microsoft will release an update for the Powerpoint vulnerabilities that they disclosed last month for both Windows and Mac platforms, but at the time only provided patches for Windows.

We will not see a fix for the DirectShow vulnerability KB971778 disclosed last week. While they have a fix it is still undergoing Quality Assurance and Stability testing.
