August 2010 Bulletin Release Advance Notification

Hello; I’m Angela Gunn and I’m new to the Response Communications team. Today we’re releasing our advance notification for the August security bulletin release, which is scheduled for Tuesday, August 10. This month’s release is composed of 14 bulletins addressing 34 vulnerabilities in Windows, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, SQLMSXML, and Silverlight. Eight of the bulletins carry a Critical severity rating, and six are rated Important.

As always, we recommend that customers review the ANS summary page for more information and prepare for the testing and deployment of these bulletins as soon as possible.

For those who keep track of such things, this will be the most bulletins we have ever released in a month; we have released 13 bulletins on a couple of occasions. However, in total CVE count, this release ties with June 2010, so there’s no new record there. Please join Adrian Stone and Jerry Bryant for a public webcast on Wednesday. We’ll go into detail about all the bulletins and answer questions live on the air. Register at the link below:

Date: Wednesday August 11
Time: 11:00 a.m. PDT (UTC -7)
