Microsoft has released the Security Bulletin Summary for July 2009 which contains security patches for several Microsoft products. Six security patches are provided by Microsoft this time that include three rated critical and three rated important. Affected programs are Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Microsoft ISA Server, Virtual PC and Virtual Server. Affected operating systems are pretty much all from Windows 2000 onwards although the severity rating varies depending on the operating system.
Critical ratings for Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 are usually important or moderate ratings for Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 thanks to the increased security in those operating systems. Downloads are already available from various official sources including Automatic Updates, Windows Update or Microsoft Update.
It is recommended to install the Microsoft Security Patches as soon as possible to close the security vulnerabilities.
