MS preps six fixes for November Patch Tuesday

Deliver us from XML exploit

Microsoft plans to deliver six patches next Tuesday, at least two of which are critical, as part of its regular patch Tuesday update cycle.

Redmond plans to issue a critical update to "XML Core Services" and five patches involving Windows, one or possible more of which also earn the dreaded critical tag. Hopefully the XML update will address an unpatched vulnerability in Windows discovered earlier this month. Failing that, Sys admins will have to wait another month for a fix for a vulnerability that's being actively exploited by hackers.

Microsoft's advance notice on upcoming patches can be found here. ®
