Today we provide Advance Notification Service (ANS) for the release of eight bulletins, two rated Critical and six rated Important in severity. These updates will address vulnerabilities for .NET Framework, Office, Internet Explorer, and Windows.

As we do every month, we’ve scheduled the security bulletin release for the second Tuesday of the month, May 13, 2014, at approximately 10:00 a.m. PDT. Revisit this blog then for deployment guidance and further analysis together with a brief video overview of the month’s updates. Until then, please review the ANS summary page for more information to help you prepare for deployment priorities and security bulletin testing.
