Commentary and analysis posted for todays 12 MS security bulletins

Tue, 13 Jun 2006 15:30:04 GMT

Microsoft finally released the patch for the very public Word 2000/2002/2003 vulnerability I began blogging about several weeks ago. ( Until now your only real protection has been comprehensive and up-to-date anti-malware coverage. I recommend deploying this update to all systems with a vulnerable version of Word installed as soon as possible since this is a very public vulnerability already being exploited in the wild.

In addition Microsoft released 11 other security bulletins covering a wide range of vulnerabilities. One bulletin (MS06-021) covers 8 different vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer on all versions of Windows and I recommend installing it on all computers used to access the web. 2 bulletins deal with vulnerabilities in image file formats (ART and WMF) which you should like wise patch on workstations. Out of the 12, only about 4 bulletins deserve particular consideration for servers.

See for full details.
