Microsoft has fixed nine vulnerabilities in its latest monthly security update, which it issued yesterday.

The software giant has released six patches, one less than expected, addressing a range of vulnerabilities including flaws in Internet Explorer.

Three of the nine patches issued fixed flaws in Internet Explorer 6 and 7. The vulnerabilities included a critical flaw that could have enabled a hacker to perform remote execution of code.

The other areas fixed were Microsoft Word, Outlook Express, and Kodak Image Viewer.
