February 2009 Monthly Bulletin Release

Today we’re releasing four new security bulletins as part of our regular monthly release process. 

·         MS09-002 rated Critical that addresses two code execution vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer.

·         MS09-003 rated Critical that addresses one code execution vulnerability and one denial of service vulnerability in Exchange Server.

·         MS09-004 rated Important that addresses one code execution vulnerability in SQL Server.

·         MS09-005 rated Important that addresses three code execution vulnerabilities in Visio.


We’re also releasing Microsoft Security Advisory 960715 that announces the release of a new cumulative update for killbits on third-party ActiveX controls.


This month’s edition of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) adds the ability to remove the Win32/Srizbi family of trojans.  Again this month, our colleagues over at the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) have information on this month’s MSRT addition on their weblog.
