Microsoft will issue two bulletins fixing eight vulnerabilities rated "important" in Windows and Microsoft Office products on Tuesday, the company announced on Thursday.
This represents a light Patch Tuesday, a contrast to last month when the company patched 26 holes with 13 bulletins, including critical vulnerabilities for Windows.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is continuing to monitor the situation with a VBScript vulnerability that was disclosed on Monday, Jerry Bryant, senior security communications manager lead at the company, wrote in a blog post.
Proof-of-concept code has been published on the Internet that exploits that vulnerability, which affects older Windows systems running Internet Explorer. Microsoft suggested several workarounds until it releases a patch, including avoiding pressing the F1 key when prompted by a Web site.
