Microsoft is giving premium customers advance notice of security bulletins, internetnews.com has learned.

The company plans to release two security bulletins, one with a "critical" rating, on Tuesday September 14, in order to plug holes in multiple software products, according to an advance notice sent to select customers.

The note, obtained by internetnews.com, said Microsoft's September batch of patches will plug a serious vulnerability in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Home, Microsoft Visual Studio, and Microsoft .NET Framework.

A separate patch with an "important" rating will be issued for Microsoft Office customers, the company said in the notice, which was sent only to premier customers.

"At this time no additional information on these internal bulletins such as details regarding severity or details regarding the vulnerability will be made available until 14 September 2004," according to the notice.
