This months patches from Microsoft will only includes two fixes, one of which is critical and is for Windows XP users. The other which is listed as important only affects Server 2003 users. No patches nor fixes are being listed for the Vista operating system. Which in itself is good news since Microsoft has stated that Vista is the most secure operating system they have developed. Hopefully the fix count will remain low for the remainder of the year.
