Microsoft plans to release only one patch this Tuesday as part of its monthly cycle, the company said in a security advisory on its website.
The patch fixes a hole in Windows which Microsoft rates as 'critical', the most severe security ranking. The software maker also plans to release one non-security update for the operating system.
The software giant's 'Patch Tuesday' traditionally coincides with the release of an updated version of its Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Microsoft plans to host a web conference on the day after the patch releases at 11am PDT (7pm GMT) to answer customer questions.
