Microsoft To Release Fix For 25 Windows Bugs

Microsoft is due fix a total of 25 bugs in its upcoming patch next week.

The sizeable Patch Tuesday update, which will arrive on April 13, features fixes for Windows, Microsoft Office and Exchange software.

CNet details that the patch features 11 fixes for a total of 25 problems, a rather substantial update in comparison to last month's somewhat tame update. Five of the fixes are classed as "critical updates" and claim to address a serious issue in which a potential attacker could take control of a user's computer. Another of the five updates are considered "important," with the remaining update classed as a "moderate" fix.

Microsoft's Security Bulletin Advance Notice report details that nine of the eleven bulletin fixes apply to Windows, with two applying to Office products, and one applying to Exchange software.

The upcoming fixes, most of which will require a restart, apply to a wide range of Windows operating systems, including: Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2003, Server 2008, Office XP, Office 2003, 2007 Microsoft Office System and Exchange Server 2000, 2003, 2007, and 2010.

More information regarding the upcoming patch can be found in Microsoft's Security Bulletin.
