Microsoft Has A Big Patch Tuesday Coming Up

Microsoft will be releasing 12 patches this Tuesday to fix some flaws in various software. Nine of the patches are going to be for Windows, two are for Office, and one is for Exchange. This is quite a big list of patches!

Two of the updates are critical (one for Windows and one for Office) and the patches will change the way Internet Explorer handles ActiveX:

Microsoft introduced the change, which may affect how certain Web sites are displayed in the browser, two months ago. It gave Web developers a “compatibility patch” to give them time to adjust to the new process, but the June security updates will end that respite.

Sounds interesting, I can’t wait to see how well these go over.
