Next Tuesday will also bring with it non-security but high-priority updates to Microsoft's patching tools. Microsoft Update, Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services and Software Update Services are all due to get to get a fresh lick of paint. Redmond's security elves will also push out the latest in a series of monthly updates to Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. ®
