Microsoft is lining up a bumper load of 10 security bulletins covering 34 vulnerabilities for June's Patch Tuesday release.

Three of the 10 bulletins, due on 8 June, cover critical flaws, normally defined as security holes that might allow an attacker to take full control of the targeted machine. The other seven notices fall in the lesser category of important and deal with bugs in Windows and Office.

The critical vulnerabilities affect all supported version of Windows (including Windows 7) and Internet Explorer.

"The June release is a large update and will keep system administrators busy, even if they have migrated to Windows 7 already," explained Wolfgang Kandek, CTO of Qualys.

The updates are due to cover two unpatched vulnerabilities in SharePoint (KB983438) and an information leakage bug in Internet Explorer (KB980088), he added.

More details will come with the release of the patches on Tuesday.
