Microsoft plans gigantic Patch Tuesday next week

 Slates record-tying 34 patches for Windows, IE, Office and SharePoint

The patches will also quash two bugs that Microsoft acknowledged in February and April.

“I’d actually call this a moderate month,” said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Security. “Looking at the criticality of the bulletins, and the fact that the number [of bulletins] is low, it doesn’t look like a huge month to me.”

By the numbers, however, next week’s updates will be huge. Although the 10 updates fall short of the record of 13 — first set in October 2009, then repeated in February 2010 — Microsoft will fix a total of 34 vulnerabilities, the same number as the current record, also set last October.
