Much delayed post, but I’m sure some of you probably know or can take a good guess at what is causing my delay today. Not long after we released this morning, we found out that many of the digital signatures on some of the IE updates for MS05-038 were corrupted and were preventing install. This only impacts those downloading from the Download Center, not Windows Update, Microsoft Update, SUS, or WSUS. At least now we know what the problem is and it should be fixed soon.

So here is what we cranked out today. You can find all the details on the bulletins here:

MS05-038 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of "Critical."

MS05-039 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of "Critical."

MS05-040 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of "Important."

MS05-041 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of "Moderate."

MS05-042 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of "Moderate."

MS05-043 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of "Critical."

Also we re-released two other bulletins MS05-023 and MS05-032.

We’ve also updated the Malicious Software Removal available here and as always we encourage folks to join the monthly technical webcast tomorrow to learn more about the bulletins. You can sign up here.
