Microsoft is planning to post seven bulletins next week in the June edition of its 'Patch Tuesday' security release.
The company said the seven bulletins would include three updates rated by the company as 'critical' and four more fixes classified by the company as 'important' updates.
While Microsoft does not provide specific details on a vulnerability prior to its patch release, the company did say that the critical fixes will address flaws in Windows, Internet Explorer and the .NET Framework
Critical patches will apply to all currently supported versions of Microsoft Windows and Windows Server.
Other components which will be receiving fixes in the update include Microsoft Office, Visual Basic and Dynamics AX.
The release will be the latest in what has been a busy period for Microsoft's security team. The company has had to release a pair of unplanned updates to address breaking security threats.
Paul Henry, a security and forensic analyst with security firm Lumension, said that despite the attention being paid to high-profile attacks, administrators should not forget to test and install Microsoft's upcoming releases.
"In light of the latest Flame malware, on the heels of Stuxnet and Duqu, many organisations are concerned about how their systems could be targeted from the outside by attackers," said Henry.
"With a remote code execution vulnerability for both IE and Windows 2008 Sever, organisations should be vigilant and apply patches immediately."
