Microsoft Microsoft plans to issue patches for 'critical' Windows and Office security problems as part of a regular update scheduled for Tuesday. The software company said in an advisory Thursday that it will issue four bulletins for Windows flaws and three for Office. At least one Windows and one Office problem are deemed 'critical', Microsoft's highest-risk category for security vulnerabilities, according to the advisory.

I don't see why this is news

I'm not normally "that guy" that questions why dumb submissions are posted on OSNews, but this is a little ridiculous. For one thing, there's no useful discussion that can come from this, as we have seen from the above posts and this one as well. It's flamebait _at best_, and otherwise it simply reminds us that Microsoft is going to release patches on the second Tuesday of July, just as they have done every other month for some time now.

OSNews doesn't post a story every time a Linux kernel dev tags a new .y kernel, and I don't understand how this is very different.
