Microsoft WindowsAs part of its monthly patching cycle, Microsoft on Tuesday plans to release six security alerts for flaws in Windows.

A least one of the alerts is deemed "critical," Microsoft's highest risk rating, the company said in a notice posted on its Web site on Thursday.

The notice did not specify which components of Windows are affected. Earlier this week, security company eEye Digital Security said it had found serious flaws in Windows 2000 and Internet Explorer. Microsoft is investigating the issues, a company representative has said.

In addition to the patches, the software giant will issue on Tuesday a "high-priority" update for Windows that is unrelated to security. That day is also tagged for the usual release of an updated version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, which detects and removes malicious code placed on computers, Microsoft said.
