Looks like next Tuesday will be another "average" patch Tuesday. We are to expect 8 total patches, 3 of which are rated "critical" with the remaining 5 "important".

There will be no patch for the TIFF vulnerability. But then again, it was just announced this week. Also, if you are running Window 7 or later, you should be safe for now from this exploit.

The three critical patches include the typical "cummulative Internet Explorer" patch and two Windows Patches. It doesn't look like any of the patches addresses specific server issues, but some of the Windows patches will affect servers as well as clients.
