The latest round of Patch Tuesday updates will include some familiar fixes, but it also includes some fixes admins don’t often see.

In its latest advance security notification, Microsoft said the newest security updates will include seven bulletins. Two of the bulletins are critical and five are important.

Both critical bulletins address remote code execution vulnerabilities. Multiple versions of Internet Explorer, Lync, Office and Windows are affected.

The important bulletins in this Patch Tuesday cycle address remote code execution, information disclosure and denial of service vulnerabilities as well as a rare tampering vulnerability. Multiple versions of Lync, Office and Windows are affected.

The company said it will also release an updated version of its Malicious Software Removal Tool, which can be accessed through the Download Center, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services or Windows Update.
