Microsoft is ending 2013 with a bang with the last batch of Patch Tuesday security updates for the year.

In its advance security notification, the company said it would have 11 total bulletins, five of which are critical.

All of the critical bulletins include fixes for remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Microsoft Office, Microsoft Lync, Internet Explorer, Exchange Server and Windows are affected.

The six important bulletins will include fixes for remote code execution, elevation of privilege, information disclosure and security feature bypass vulnerabilities. Office, Windows Server software and developer tools will be affected.

The last batch of Patch Tuesday security updates brings the yearly total to 106 bulletins. This year’s bulletin total marks a reverse in the trend of a decreased number of bulletins that was seen in 2011 and 2012.
