September 2006 Monthly Bulletin Release



This is Christopher Budd.  I wanted to take a moment to let you know that we’ve posted our security bulletins for September 2006.  Specifically, this month, we’re releasing:


  • MS06-052 applies to Microsoft Windows and is rated Important
  • MS06-053 applies to Microsoft Windows and is rated as Moderate
  • MS06-054 applies to Microsoft Office and is rated as Critical for earlier versions and Important for more recent versions.

 We also re-released:


  • MS06-040 for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Professional x64 editions only. This is to address issues with programs that request large blocks of contiguous memory identified in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 924054.
  • MS06-042 for IE 5.01 SP4, IE 6.0 SP1, and IE 6 on Windows Server 2003.  This is to address the Long URL Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. Tony Chor with the IE team has posted information on this re-release on their weblog here.

Both re-releases will be provided through the same channels as the original releases and customers who are using products affected by the re-releases should apply the new updates.


Finally, today, we’ve published two security advisories:

  • Microsoft Security Advisory (922582) that announces the availability of an update that addresses errors trying  to update a computer that has a minifilter-based application installed.
  • Microsoft Security Advisory (925143) to make customers aware of Adobe Security Bulletin: APSB06-11. This bulletin provides guidance to users of Macromedia Flash Player from Adobe – version and earlier which is redistributed with Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2, and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

Finally, a reminder that tomorrow, as we do each month, we will be hosting a webcast to go over this month’s release and take your questions.  The webcast will be at 11 AM Pacific Time and then later available on-demand.  You can register for it here.
