Microsoft will release two security bulletins on Sept. 11 with fixes for problems that could allow elevation of privileges in the company’s developer tools software and server software. Both are rated “important” in security impact.
According to the advanced notification for the upcoming Patch Tuesday, the updates will be for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010, Service Pack 1; and for Microsoft Systems Management Server 2003, Service Pack 3, and System Center Configuration Manager 2007, Service Pack 2.
An “important” rating means that exploitation could compromise data and processing resources, usually with warnings or prompts to the user. It is a step below “critical” vulnerabilities, which can produce compromises without warning or user interaction.
The company also will release an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool on Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services and the Download Center.
