Today, we provide advance notification for the release of nine Security Bulletins. Two of these are rated Critical, and the remaining seven are rated Important in severity. These Updates are for SQL Server, SharePoint, OneNote, .NET, Microsoft Windows, and Internet Explorer.

As per our usual process, we’ve scheduled the Security Bulletin release for the second Tuesday of the month, August 12, 2014, at approximately 10 a.m. PDT. Revisit this blog then for analysis of the relative impact, as well as deployment guidance, together with a brief video overview of the month’s Updates.

We will also plan to have our Security Bulletin Webcast, scheduled on Wednesday, August 13, at 11 a.m. PDT, on our Trustworthy Computing UStream Channel. Until then, please review the ANS summary page for more information to help you prepare for Security Bulletin testing and deployment. Don’t forget, you can also follow us on Twitter at @MSFTSecResponse. 

Thank you,
