March 2008 Monthly Release

Wow! It is already the 2nd Tuesday of the month, and with it comes the announcement of some new bulletins! This is Tami Gallupe, MSRC Release Manager, and I just wanted to let you know that we just posted our March 2008 Bulletins. We released four bulletins today, all are for Office and all have a maximum severity rating of Critical.  Here is a quick list of what we released:


MS08-014: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Excel Could Allow Remote Code Execution. Note that this Excel bulletin addresses the issue highlighted in Microsoft Security Advisory (947563).

MS08-015: Vulnerability in Microsoft Outlook Could Allow Remote Code Execution

MS08-016: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution

MS08-017: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Web Components Could Allow Remote Code Execution


Our team also plans to post some additional in-depth technical information about today’s release on the Security Vulnerability Research & Defense  blog. It will be available this afternoon, and I think it will be worthwhile to stop by and check it out.


As always, the webcast is one of my favorite events, and I want to make sure you are aware that it starts tomorrow at 11:00 AM PST.  We’ll be talking about today’s release and answering your questions on the air. Click here to register. We look forward to hearing from you tomorrow.
