11 security updates next week to patch 25 vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Office and Exchange


Microsoft today said it would deliver 11 security updates next week to patch 25 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office and Exchange.

“Big day next Tuesday,” said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Network Security, of the patch news.

In its monthly advance notification , Microsoft spelled out next week’s double-digit Patch Tuesday, which is entirely in line with company’s pattern of alternating large- and small-sized updates, said Storms. “This fits with what we expected,” he said, “a double-digit bulletin [Patch Tuesday] and double-digit CVEs.”

The latter, for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures, is the identifying number each individual vulnerability receives when it’s logged into the public CVE database. “We get this up-and-down from Microsoft now.”
