Microsoft has already announced that the first Patch Tuesday of the year would come with a total of seven updates aimed at various software products, with the company planning to skip a fix for the recently discovered Internet Explorer bug.

But it’s more important to note that Microsoft will patch almost all Windows versions currently on the market, including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows RT.

Just like it usually does when it officially releases advanced notifications, the company is yet to disclose the bugs it will fix on Patch Tuesday, but it did confirm that a total of 12 apps would be patched.

Windows 8 and Windows 7 will receive critical updates, while Windows RT, the operating system aimed at tablets, will get three important fixes.

Microsoft is yet to confirm it, but the Windows RT patches may fix the Wi-Fi bug that prevents Surface RT owners from connecting to wireless networks after firmware updates.
