Admins can expect to see some familiar security updates in the latest Patch Tuesday, but they can also expect to see a rare update.

In its advance security notification, Microsoft said there will be six bulletins in this batch of security updates. Two are critical, three are important and one is moderate.

Both of the critical security updates will address remote code execution vulnerabilities and will affect multiple versions of Windows Server and Internet Explorer. All three important updates will address elevation of privilege vulnerabilities and will affect multiple versions of Windows.

The rare moderate update addresses a denial of service vulnerability and affects Microsoft Service Bus for Windows Server.

Microsoft will also include an updated version of its Malicious Software Removal Tool, it said.

Last month’s Patch Tuesday security updates addressed a large number of vulnerabilities. One of the critical updates addressed 59 reported vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer.
