Hey, it’s Craig Gehre.  Well today the MSRC released five new security updates.  Four of the updates affect Windows, while the fifth affects Windows and Office.  For those of you that are wondering, the first Windows update addresses the “createTextRange” issue you may have been following via our security advisory 917077. The complete list of updates is below:

The bulletins went live this morning at approximately 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time but if you're looking for more information you can find that here: http://www.microsoft.com/security/

The monthly installment of the technology to remove malicious software from users systems is available today as well. This month’s update removes Win32/Locksky, Win32/Valla and Win32/Reatle. Customers can download the tool at www.microsoft.com/malwareremove.
