Microsoft releases 12 security fixes

Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday released 12 security fixes for its Windows
operating system and Office business software.

Seven of the patches are to fix Windows flaws that carry the company's
highest danger rating.

In its monthly security bulletin, Microsoft also said that two of the
fixes are for vulnerabilities in some versions of its Office software
that carry the highest "critical" rating. One of those fixes also
applies to the 2004 version of Office for Apple Computer Inc.'s
Macintosh systems.

All of the patches are to fix weaknesses that could allow an attacker
to take complete control of a person's computer.
