    Microsoft on Tuesday announced seven new security updates for Windows, including two that address "critical" vulnerabilities. Separately, Microsoft has made available a tool to clean systems affected by the Download.Ject exploit. The company had previously released a configuration change designed to help prevent infection, but has yet to release a patch.

    Security company Symantec said the new product vulnerabilities include "high risk" threats. "These newly announced vulnerabilities may be exploited remotely, which could allow denial-of-service attacks, and could result in the loss of confidential data," Symantec said in a statement. "Symantec strongly advises users to apply security patches for these vulnerabilities immediately."
