Microsoft announced today that they will be shipping three critical and five important bulletins in the May edition of patch Tuesday.
All of the ‘critical’ bulletins and two of the ‘important’ bulletins fix vulnerabilities that could otherwise lead to remote code execution. The two remaining ‘important’ bulletins could lead to an elevation of privilege if unpatched.
The affected software includes, Microsoft Office, Windows, .NET Framework, and Silverlight. The bugs that will be fixed this month will affect all of the current versions of Windows.
The official bulletins will be released on the TechNet Blog Tuesday, May 8, and Microsoft will host a webcast to discuss the fixes the following day, May, 9, at 11 AM PST.
