Microsoft to Patch 8 Windows, Office Bugs

Kara Reeder

This month's Patch Tuesday from Microsoft will see two bulletins fixing eight vulnerabilities rated "important" in Windows and Microsoft Office products, according to CNET News.


Computerword reports that the first bulletin will address one or more vulnerabilities in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, while the second will fix bugs in various versions of Excel. With both updates, the vulnerabilities only exist if a user is tricked into opening a malicious file. "There are no network-based attack vectors," says Jerry Bryant, a senior manager with the Microsoft Security Research Center.


The updates are due out on Tuesday, March 9.
