Microsoft slates critical IE, Windows patches for next week

Gregg Keizer | July 4, 2014
Microsoft pans to ship six security updates to customers next week, patching all versions of Internet Explorer and nearly all supported editions of Windows.

Or in some cases, even present patches, said Chris Goettl, a program product manager at Shavlik, in an email.

"One thing to watch out for [next week] will be [something similar to] the many exceptions we saw last month," Goettl cautioned. "Many of the updates we saw in June required other updates to be in place, depending on the platform. For those running Windows 8.1 or Server 2012 R2, they need to be prepared for more of these updates to require Update 1 before they can apply them. Microsoft has stated they would delay a hard enforcement until August, but more and more of the patches [have] had variations that required Update 1. So look out for that cut over — it's coming quick."

Microsoft will ship the six security updates on July 8 at approximately 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT).
