eWeek: On Valentine's Day, Microsoft will be delivering a gift to its software users--a security update with nine patches to address 21 vulnerabilities. The release will include four "critical" bulletins for Internet Explorer, Windows and Silverlight. Five "important" bulletins will patch Office and Sharepoint.
