Issued: May 9, 2013
********************************************************************

This is an advance notification of security bulletins that 
Microsoft is intending to release on May 14, 2013.

The full version of the Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance 
Notification for May 2013 can be found at 
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/ms13-may.

This bulletin advance notification will be replaced with the 
May bulletin summary on May 14, 2013. For more 
information about the bulletin advance notification service, see 
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/advance.

To receive automatic notifications whenever Microsoft Security 
Bulletins are issued, subscribe to Microsoft Technical Security 
Notifications on 
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/dd252948.

Microsoft will host a webcast to address customer questions on 
these bulletins on May 15, 2013, at 11:00 AM Pacific Time 
(US & Canada). Register for the Security Bulletin Webcast at 
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin.

Microsoft also provides information to help customers prioritize 
monthly security updates with any non-security, high-priority 
updates that are being released on the same day as the monthly 
security updates. Please see the section, Other Information.

This advance notification provides a number as the 
bulletin identifier, because the official Microsoft Security 
Bulletin numbers are not issued until release. The bulletin summary 
that replaces this advance notification will have the proper 
Microsoft Security Bulletin numbers (in the MSyy-xxx format) as the 
bulletin identifier. The security bulletins for this month are as 
follows, in order of severity:

To improve security protections for customers, Microsoft provides
vulnerability information to major security software providers in
advance of each monthly security update release. Security software
providers can then use this vulnerability information to provide
updated protections to customers via their security software or
devices, such as antivirus, network-based intrusion detection
systems, or host-based intrusion prevention systems. To determine
whether active protections are available from security software
providers, please visit the active protections websites provided by

Recognize and avoid fraudulent email to Microsoft customers:
=============================================================
If you receive an email message that claims to be distributing 
a Microsoft security update, it is a hoax that may contain 
malware or pointers to malicious websites. Microsoft does 
not distribute security updates via email. 

The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) uses PGP to digitally 
sign all security notifications. However, PGP is not required for 
reading security notifications, reading security bulletins, or 
installing security updates. You can obtain the MSRC public PGP key 
at
