Microsoft plans to fix 22 vulnerabilities as part of its upcoming Patch Tuesday.

The Advanced Notification for the July Patch Tuesday is due to fix some critical vulnerabilities in Windows 7 and Vista. Microsoft is issuing four bulletins on Tuesday to fix 22 flaws across Windows and Office. Three of the bulletins are rated Important whilst one is rated critical, affecting Windows 7 and Vista. Microsoft didn't detail the flaws but its fourth bulletin will address a flaw in Visio 2003 SP3 rated Important. Two of the important bulletins affect Windows XP SP3 whilst all three non-office bulletins affect Windows 7.

Nice. Windows 7 SP1 was a very nice release. I've been in Linux world for a bit and missed it. After testing the same applications I used on Linux that work on Windows, I found that they actually start faster and some have a slight better stability. Security has also gotten better. IE doesn't download viruses across some bad sites. Still, Windows needs more protection across shared networks.

Something I'm not understanding while using IE9 is that it will error out on some pages for no reason and pop an alert saying Internet Explorer failed to connect with the site.

My issue with IE9 is the way it handles secure and non-secure content.

Totally fucks up the page.

I love the speed of fixing vulnerabilities but it looks disgusting.

Too many flaws to recover in every single month.
