In its advance notification, Microsoft said the monthly update will address flaws in Windows, Internet Explorer (IE), Office, .NET and Visual Studio.

Two of the 13 bulletins drew a "critical" rating. One of those addresses bugs in IE 6, 7, 8 and 9 across all supported versions of Windows.

The patches are due Tuesday around 1 p.m. EST.

August's release follows last month's patch batch that featured four fixes for 22 vulnerabilities.
