Today, we’re providing advance notification for six bulletins to help protect customers against 19 CVEs. The four Critical-rated updates will address 13 vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer and the .NET Framework. One bulletin rated Important will address four vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office and finally, one Moderate update will address two issues in Microsoft Windows.

As usual, the bulletin release is scheduled for the second Tuesday of the month, November 13, 2012, at approximately 10 a.m. PST. We recommend that customers review the ANS summary page for more information and prepare for bulletin testing and deployment as soon as possible to help ensure a smooth update process. For all the latest information, you can also follow the MSRC team on Twitter at @MSFTSecResponse.
