A software update deemed critical may not necessarily be critical in your environment. You can create your own custom severity levels and assign them to software bulletins.
You first create custom severity levels, and then assign them to bulletins. You can alter custom severity levels. You cannot alter the vendor-specified severity levels.
See About software updates and software bulletins.
