In brief Microsoft plans to release three critical security patches on Tuesday, 12 July. Two of these affect Windows while one affects Office. News of the upcoming patches came in an advance bulletin notification issued Thursday which omits any details about the upcoming security fixes.

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. ®
