Critical fixes for IE, Windows expected in March Patch Tuesday

Admins will have a light number of security updates to apply for this month’s Patch Tuesday.

In its advance security notification, Microsoft said it will release five security updates in this cycle. Two of the bulletins are marked as critical and three are marked as important.

The critical bulletins address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Internet Explorer and Windows are affected.

The important bulletins address elevation of privilege and security feature bypass vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Windows are affected as well as Microsoft Silverlight.

Microsoft said it would also release an updated version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool.

This is the second month in a row in which IE is receiving a critical security update. In last month’s Patch Tuesday security updates, Microsoft released a fix to address 24 vulnerabilities.
