Microsoft has released their advance notification for June's upcoming 'Patch Tuesday', and it looks like system administrators will have their work cut out for them next week. The company will be releasing 10 security bulletins and patches to address the 34 vulnerabilities disclosed in them. Of the ten bulletins, three are rated "Critical" and could allow an attacker to take full control of the targeted machine through security holes in Windows and Internet Explorer.

The remaining seven bulletins are all marked as important and deal with bugs in Windows and Office concerning remote code execution issues, elevation of privileges and tampering with targeted systems. The updates are due to cover two un-patched vulnerabilities, a cross-site scripting bug in SharePoint (KB983438) disclosed back in April, and an information leakage bug in Internet Explorer (KB980088) that has been known since February.

As usual, there will also be an update for the Windows Malicious Software Removal tool. More details will come with the release of the patches on Tuesday, but in the meantime, Microsoft's advance notification can be found here.
