    This month's Patch Tuesday will see Microsoft roll out seven fresh updates - five rated 'Critical' and two 'Important' - which are set to address 11 vulnerabilities. These upcoming patches target bugs found in Office suites (2003, 2007 and 2010) and Office Web Apps, in Microsoft Exchange Server, and in Windows operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, RT, Server 2003, Server 2008 and Server 2012).

    A bit more info about the updates can be found in the advanced notification published here.

    They should postpone it and launch it on 12.12.12 and address 12 vulnerabilities. Doomsday!

    In fact, a vast majority of all updates for my Windows install are updates not directly related to the system.
