Microsoft released seven (7) bulletins, of which three (3) bulletins ares identified as Critical and four (4) as Important.
The bulletins address twenty-six (26) vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, Visual Basic for Applications, Dynamics AX, and the .NET Framework.
In addition to the security bulletins identified below, an automatic updater feature for Windows Vista and Windows 7 untrusted certificates is being released. As described in the MSRC Blog:
"This new automatic updater feature provides a mechanism that allows Windows to specifically flag certificates as untrusted. With this new feature, Windows will check daily for updated information about certificates that are no longer trustworthy. In the past, movement of certificates to the untrusted store required a manual update. This new automatic update mechanism, which relies on a list of untrusted certificates known as a Disallowed Certificate Trust List (CTL), is detailed on the PKI blog. We encourage all customers to install this new feature immediately."
If you have had difficulties with .NET Framework in the past, it is strongly advised that the MS12-038 .NET update be installed separately, including a shutdown/restart.
