Hi Everyone!

 

This is Tami Gallupe, MSRC release manager, and here is a brief update on the bulletins we released today.

 

Today, we released 6 bulletins: 4 have a maximum severity rating of Critical and 2 have a maximum severity rating of Important. The bulletins are as follows:

 

  • MS07-055 addresses a vulnerability in Kodak Image Viewer, and is rated as a Critical bulletin.
  • MS07-056 addresses a vulnerability Outlook Express and Windows Mail, and is rated as a Critical bulletin for earlier versions of Windows and as an Important bulletin for Windows Vista.
  • MS07-057 is a Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer, and is rated as a Critical bulletin.
  • MS07-058 addresses a vulnerability in RPC, and is rated as an Important bulletin.  
  • MS07-059 addresses a vulnerability in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Office SharePoint Server 2007, and is rated as an Important bulletin.  
  • MS07-060 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Word, and is rated as a Critical bulletin for earlier versions and as an Important bulletin for more recent versions.

You might notice that we are shipping 6, not 7, bulletins this month, as we had originally stated in our ANS last Thursday. As previously communicated, the ANS is always subject to change. We decided to remove one of the updates from the release schedule due to a quality control issue, so we can resolve that issue prior to releasing the update to customers.

In addition to the bulletins mentioned above, Microsoft also re-released bulletin MS05-004. This re-release updates detection includes Server 2003 Service Pack 2 and Vista as affected platforms. There were no changes to the update binaries, so if you have already successfully installed this update, you do not need to reinstall it. Customers who have applied MS07-040 are unaffected by this detection update, as their systems are up-to-date from a .NET Framework security stance. Please refer to the bulletin revision history for more information.

As we do every month, we also released an update to the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

By the way, I hope you can join us for tomorrow’s webcast (Wednesday, October 9th). It is still one of my favorite events of the release, as this is our opportunity to hear from you. Click here to register. 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks!

Tami
