This binds with December 2010 as the most bulletins, and gets the clear guide for number of faults fixed.
Nine bulletins are dangerous, with all moving the danger of remote code implementation.

Seven of the bulletins have obligatory restarts; the residue “may” do so.
With the characteristic patches for Windows, Internet Explorer, and Office, a couple of the bulletins comprise more strange patches. Specially, the Office Web Apps and Visual Studio are together getting fixes this month. Not incorporated in the file of patched software is Internet Explorer 9; this newest browser edition is in fact resistant to the faults moving versions 6, 7, and 8 that will be patched next week.

The corporation proclaimed that it had discovered of incomplete, targeted attacks by means of the MHTML flaw in March. The SMB flaw accepted a hypothetical option of remote code execution, but the corporation sensed that refutation of service was the more probable outcome. The complete list of determined flaws as ever, won’t be proclaimed until next week.
