Microsoft on Tuesday plans to release a dozen security bulletins, including a "critical" one for its own anti-spyware and other security products.

The bulletins, part of its monthly patch cycle, will provide fixes for an undisclosed number of security vulnerabilities, Microsoft said in a note on its Web site Thursday.

The software maker plans to offer fixes for Windows, Office, Visual Studio, Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC), and several of its security products, including its Windows Live OneCare package of antivirus, firewall and PC health tools and its Windows Defender anti-spyware.

Thanks for the reminder engine. This is part of Microsoft's regularly scheduled monthly patch release, known as Patch Tuesday.

    All the patches are ready for download now...at least for me in Japan. I assume the rest of you were able to access them a bit earlier.

    For some reason I was having a bit of a mental block here as I forgot to realize that just because there is a new OS release in Vista, security updates apply to existing operating systems too, including XP!

    Thanks for the heads up.
