Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) late Friday said it would issue two security bulletins on Tuesday, July 28, outside of its regular monthly patch cycle. The company typically releases "out-of-band" bulletins to address vulnerabilities that demand immediate attention.

In a statement, Mike Reavey, director of the Microsoft Security Response Center, provided few particulars other than saying the two bulletins -- one affecting Visual Studio and one affecting Internet Explorer -- will address a single, overall issue. "While we can't go into specifics about the issue prior to release, we can say that the Visual Studio bulletin will address an issue that can affect certain types of applications," he said. "The Internet Explorer bulletin will provide defense-in-depth changes to Internet Explorer to help provide additional protections for the issues addressed by the Visual Studio bulletin."    [Comments...]
