Slow start to year’s Patch Tuesdays


It may just be the time of the year, but only two patches will be issued by Microsoft on its first Patch Tuesday of 2008 tomorrow – one listed as "critical", the other as "important".

The critical security update is for a "remote code execution" flaw in Windows, particularly Windows XP and Vista. The second patch is aimed at all versions of Windows except for Vista.
Microsoft will also issue seven "non-security, high-priority" updates for Windows and other related products.
