The Microsoft security updates for May 2010 are now available for download and installation. The patches are available on Windows Update where users can install them directly on affected systems or by downloading patches individually from Microsoft's Download Center.
Microsoft has released a total of two security bulletins that fix vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Visual Basic.
The maximum severity rating has been set to critical. The critical rating applies only to some operating systems and applications.
The vulnerabilities in both bulletins can be exploited to execute code remotely on affected operating systems and applications.
The security patches can be downloaded via Windows Update, Microsoft Update and the individual security bulletin pages.
