Microsoft warned system administrators on Thursday to prepared for nearly
dozen fixes, some critical, to its operating system, Office productivity
suite and .Net framework.

The software giant published its Security Bulletin Advance Notification
on Thursday, saying that the company plans to release on Tuesday six
patches for Windows (including some critical issues), four patches for
Office (also
including some critical issues), and a single patch for its .Net
Each class of updates will likely require a restart, the company stated.

It's likely that Microsoft will fix two serious zero-day flaws that
online attackers have been using to compromise victims' computers. The
attacks prompted third-party developers to release their own patches for
the security issues last week.

Since November 2004, Microsoft has given system administrators advance
warning of coming patches, which have typically been scheduled for
release on the second Tuesday of every month, a practice instituted in
October 2003.


God I hope not........
