With the next Patch Tuesday just around the corner, Microsoft on Thursday published the Security Bulletin Advance Notification for March 2012. Next week’s Patch Tuesday will be a lot lighter compared to the one in February. Hit the jump for more.

According to Microsoft’s advance notification, the company will deliver six bulletins addressing seven vulnerabilities on March 13, 2012. This is considerably less compared to last month’s Patch Tuesday, which brought nine bulletins addressing 21 vulnerabilities. Of the six security bulletins, only one is rated “critical,” Microsoft’s highest severity rating. All others, as is obvious from the table below, are either rated “important” or "moderate."
