The software maker said today that it deliver a total of ten patches next week, which is about average for a Patch Tuesday. Six of the 10, however, are rated critical.Perhaps the most serious flaw is the one that resides in Internet Explorer, and affects the newly released IE8, which shipped just three months ago.

An additional six flaws to be fixed are for Windows, and the final three affect Word, Excel, and "Office."

More information on the upcoming patches can be found in the Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification for June 2009.

Microsoft also said (is it is the norm) it will release an updated version of its Malicious Software Removal Tool and Windows Mail Junk Filter.

In other patch related news, Adobe also said today that it expects to provide updates for Adobe Reader and Acrobat versions 7.x, 8.x, and 9.x for Windows and Macintosh on the same day as Patch Tuesday. This will be the first regular quarterly security update Adobe promised to start a couple weeks ago.
