Solitary critical Windows update to star in modest Patch Tuesday

Four square

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Microsoft is to issue four bulletins next Tuesday – one of which is critical – as part of the July edition of its Patch Tuesday update cycle.

The sole critical update involves an unspecified flaw restricted to Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Another bulletin tackles a remote code execution bug in Visio 2003 SP3.

The other two "important" updates both involve security bugs in Windows7, Vista, XP and 2008.

July's modest patch batch follows a bumper crop of 16 updates last month, repeating the pattern of smaller patch volumes every other month that Redmond has slotted into over recent times.
