Security Bulletin Advance Notice for January 2014

Security Bulletin
On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, Microsoft is planning to release four (4) bulletins.  Each of the four bulletins are identified as Important.

The updates will be directed to vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Office, and Dynamics AX.

Additionally note that the update provided in MS14-002 fully addresses the issue first described in Security Advisory 2914486, which only affects Windows XP and Server 2003.  Microsoft has only seen this issue used in conjunction with a PDF exploit in targeted attacks and not on its own.


Users of Windows XP are reminded that support ends for Windows XP on April 8, 2014.  See Tim Rains article, The Risk of Running Windows XP After Support Ends April 2014. Note also that Microsoft Security Essentials will no longer be available for download for Windows XP.

As happens each month, Microsoft will also release an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool on Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services, and the Download Center.


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

Recently MS offered IE 11 for Windows 7 users. MS acknowledged an issue with the download that causes the "auto hide and reveal" function to not work properly.

Any chance any of these bullitens might contain a fix? Apparently this issue has been known since last September I believe.
