Microsoft plans to issue three fixes in its March security patch rollout, with one deemed "critical" and two labeled "important." Spoofing vulnerabilities will be addressed in the two important security bulletins. Spoofing is the act of masking Internet Protocol addresses to impersonate a sender or another computer.
