Today we released an update 976749 that addresses two issues with MS09-054 that a limited number customers reported to us through our Customer Service and Support (CSS) group.  These two issues can affect the proper display of web pages. For additional details, please refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 976749.

Security update MS09-054 was released as part of the October Security Bulletin Release cycle and protects against the vulnerabilities outlined in the bulletin. Also, we’re not currently aware of any attempts to attack the vulnerabilities.

While the number of customers affected by these two issues is limited, after working both with affected customers and our CSS group, we feel the best thing for all customers is to proactively provide this update as widely as possible to help prevent other customers from encountering the issues outlined in the KB.

Because of this, we plan to release this update through the same broad release channels as the original security update, MS09-054. Customers will see 976749 offered by default through Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Automatic Updates.

Customers who have applied MS09-054 should go ahead and apply 976749. Customers who have not yet applied MS09-054 should apply both MS09-054 and 976749.

There’s more information on the update and the issues it addresses in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 976749.

Thanks.

Christopher
