Microsoft is expected to release three security patches on May 9, the company's regularly-scheduled second-Tuesday patch day. At least two of the three are "critical."

Two affect Windows, while the third will resolve one or more issues in the Microsoft Exchange mail server software.

At the same time, the company will release a refreshed edition of its Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, and two non-security, high-priority updates via Microsoft Update (MU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
