MS13-021- Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (2809289)

This security update resolves eight privately reported vulnerabilities and one publicly disclosed vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

Maximum Severity Rating -
Critical
Vulnerability Impact - Remote Code Execution
Restart Requirement - Requires restart
Affected Software - Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer

MS13-022 - Vulnerability in Silverlight Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2814124)

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Silverlight. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker hosts a website that contains a specially crafted Silverlight application that could exploit this vulnerability and then convinces a user to view the website. The attacker could also take advantage of compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements. Such websites could contain specially crafted content that could exploit this vulnerability. In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to visit a website. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to visit a website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that takes them to the attacker's website. It could also be possible to display specially crafted web content by using banner advertisements or by using other methods to deliver web content to affected systems.

Maximum Severity Rating - Critical

Restart Requirement - Requires restart
Affected Software -
Microsoft Silverlight
