Bluetooth, IE, DirectX targets of MS June patches

We won't know the details until next Tuesday, but Microsoft is readying patches for a list of critical bugs that even affect Vista with SP1.

Flaws in Buletooth, Internet Explorer and DirectX are all rated by Microsoft as critical on Vista and XP.

The Bluetooth issue is not applicable to Windows 2000, Server 2003 or Server 2008. The problem with IE only warrants an important tag for version 5.01 on Windows 2000, and moderate for version 7 on Server 2008.

Other issues scheduled to be addressed on June's Patch Tuesday concern WINS, Active Directory and PGM (all with a maximum rating of important) plus a kill bit issue that's rated moderate on most supported operating systems.

The usual update for the Malicious Software Removal Tool is also planned.

More details are available in Microsoft's advance notification (NB the content will be replaced with the actual bulletins on June 10).
