Microsoft plans nine security updates

Microsoft will release nine security updates - six of them critical - on Wednesday

Microsoft will release nine sets of security patches, including six critical updates for Windows, Office, Internet Explorer and its Visual Basic development software.

The updates will come as part of Microsoft's regular monthly security patch process, and will be made available to customers on Wednesday (NZ time).

Less-serious updates are also being readied for Windows, Windows Vista, and Microsoft's Virtual PC and Virtual Server software, Microsoft said in a note on the upcoming patches, published Thursday.

With nine sets of patches, August will be a busy month for system administrators. Microsoft released just six updates in July, and has averaged around seven updates per month this year.
