Microsoft will release two bulletins on next week's Patch Tuesday, both of which will be rated as 'important'.


These patches will address four issues in Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and System Center Configuration Manager and address elevation of privilege flaws.


Ziv Mador, director of security research at Trustwave SpiderLabs, said: “The first patch, rated important, will apply to Visual FoxPro, which is a set of tools used to create and manage high-performance, 32-bit database applications and components.


“The second patch, also rated important, will apply to System Center Configuration Manager, which helps manage physical, virtual and mobile clients with things like application delivery, desktop virtualisation and security.”


Andrew Storms, director of security operations for nCircle, said: “The good news is that September is going to be a very light month for Microsoft patches. IT security teams shouldn't be lulled into a false sense of security though, they should use this time to get caught up applying existing patches and to change or replace cryptographic key lengths on the certificates used for older Microsoft systems.”
