March 2006 Bulletin Release

‘I want my two… bulletins’. For some reason an unrelenting paperboy’s quest for two dollars seems to echo in my mind today. It seems so small yet it is so important. Well today the MSRC released two new bulletins. One for Office and the other for Windows, more info below. The Windows one addresses an issue you may have been following via our advisories, 914457. BTW, this is Craig Gehre, the Release Manager for the MSRC (Don’t you get sick of team blogs saying “Jane here, blah blah blah…”?). We also released an Advisory in conjunction with an Adobe bulletin. Say heh? Adobe fixed some vulnerabilities in their Flash Player. Well, for Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, and Windows Millennium Edition we redistributed an older version of the Flash Player. So have a read through the advisory for further guidance and direction to Adobe’s security bulletin.

* MS06-011 only applies Microsoft Windows and is rated as Important.

* MS06-012 is rated critical and applies to Microsoft Office.

The bulletins went live this morning at approximately 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. 

The monthly installment of the technology to remove malicious software from users systems is available today as well. This month’s update removes Win32/Atak, Win32/Torvil and Win32/Zlob. Customers can download the tool at
