This month’s Patch Tuesday will bring critical and important fixes for multiple programs.

In the advance notification for April, Microsoft calls out nine bulletins. Two are marked as critical and seven are marked as important.

April’s two critical bulletins address remote-code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Internet Explorer and Microsoft Windows are affected.

The bulletins marked as important address vulnerabilities concerning information disclosure, elevation of privilege and denial of service. Microsoft Office and multiple versions of Windows Server and Microsoft Windows are affected.

In March’s Patch Tuesday, Microsoft included a number of non-security updates for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
