New Security Updates from Windows

Microsoft will release next Tuesday new security updates for the Windows operating system.

This time, we are talking about six patches, but unlike previous releases,
Microsoft hasn’t provided any details about them. The Redmond giant did however announce an update for Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

This update for Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool will only be distribute through Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update and Download Center. Users will not be able to access it through Software Update Services.

The only clue disclosed by Microsoft is that the rating for these updates is critical, which means that these patches will repair flaws that could lead to the infection of the system, without the users’ intervention.

Microsoft also said that together with these six patches, it will also release another update for Windows, which doesn’t have anything to do with security flaws.

Aside from this information, Microsoft also said that some of these patches will require the rebooting of the operating system.

Last month, Microsoft released only three patches.
