Microsoft June Patch Cycle heads up



It’s about that time again folks…. Monthly Microsoft patch cycle – June patches will be released on the 13th (next Tuesday) and it looks like a big batch. There should be 12 patches this time and at least one of the Windows updates is Critical and at least one of the Office updates is critical. It’s widely expected that an update will be released for the Word vulnerability that’s been talked about previously here. Also, there will be a change in the ActiveX behavior in Internet Explorer. That change had been scheduled to come out a few months back, but was postponed.


The ActiveX change is related to a settlement in a dispute between Eolas and Microsoft. (Over a patent infringement issue.)

There is also expected to be an Exchange update in the batch next Tuesday. You might expect that some of the 12 updates will possibly address multiple issues. There aren’t too many that are listed as outstanding that are publicly known at this point, so we will find out Tuesday what those address.

The official Advance bulletin can be found here (at Microsoft’s technet site.) One or more updates will require a reboot, there will be 2 for Office and there will be an update to the Malicious software removal tool. (And baseline security analyzer will be able to detect the Exchange update).

So plan ahead for next Tuesday.
