Microsoft to Release a Slew of Security Patches

February 6, 2005
February 6, 2005 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Microsoft announced it intends to release a bundle of 13 software security updates on February 8th. The highest order of magnitude for the level of security warning is critical and of course, some will require a reboot.

The security patches will affect Windows, Microsoft SharePoint, Office, .NET, Windows Media Player, and MSN Messenger.

Microsoft has been under increasing pressure to secure its software as a recent slew of high number switch-overs to Linux in Europe and Brazil have highlighted a trend towards companies cutting costs. If Microsoft cannot demonstrate it is as or more secure than Linux as it has long pronounced the switching could continue. However, Microsoft’s number 2 competitor still remains itself; that is pirated copies of Redmond’s software.
