Microsoft Security Bulletin: 13 October 2009


Microsoft released 13 new bulletins which address 34 vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office.

Microsoft is also re-releasing MS08-069, vulnerability in Microsoft XML Core Services could allow remote code execution (955218) to add detection for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Although this component does not ship with these platforms but many applications install it in order to use its functionality.

There was a change in the severity rating since the advance notification for several versions of Windows in the .NET bulletin (MS09-061). Microsoft elevated the severity from Important to Critical. This is not a regular practice, however, it was determined that this was the appropriate rating for these products when certain versions of the .NET Framework are installed on them.

The Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) adds one new family this month: Win32/FakeScanti.




Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
