Microsoft released its monthly advance security notification for Patch Tuesday, and admins can expect a number of critical fixes for July.

The company delivered seven total bulletins with six of those marked as critical, which affect almost every supported version of Windows and Windows Server. The vulnerabilities touch potential attack vectors, like .NET Framework, Silverlight, Office, Visual Studio and Lync.

The lone important bulletin for July’s Patch Tuesday addresses an elevation of privilege vulnerability, which affects Microsoft security software.

The bulletins for July appear to be following the trend of an increase in Patch Tuesday fixes this year. There were 51 fixes as of June, up from 43 fixes during the same time last year.
