Microsoft on Tuesday is planning to release 13 patches to fix 22 vulnerabilities, the software giant announced Thursday.

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.
