Posted by on Aug 8, 2010 in Microsoft, Security, Software

Microsoft will issue 14 security bulletins on Tuesday, Aug 11, 2010 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.”

Affected software includes: Windows 7; Windows XP; Vista; Windows Server 2003 and 2008; Windows Server 2008 release 2; IE 6, 7 and 8; Office XP Service Pack 3; Office 2003 Service Pack 3; 2007 Microsoft Office System Service Pack 2; Office 2004 and 2008 for Mac; Office Word Viewer; Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel and PowerPoint; 2007 File Formats Service Pack 2; Microsoft Works 9; and Silverlight 2 and 3.
