Critical September patch issued by Microsoft

Lumension Security : 07 September, 2009  (Technical Article)
Lumension comments on the latest patch update from Microsoft which are all related to the company's operating systems causing some impact to IT Administrators
Andrew Clarke, Senior VP Lumension, comments: "Microsoft is rolling out five new critical patches for September's Patch Tuesday, all of which address core Microsoft operating system platforms. Of the five critical patches, two will require mandatory restarts causing some level of disruption within the enterprise.

"As we take a look at the summary numbers, all three of Microsoft's server platforms (2000, 2003 and 2008) have critical vulnerabilities; therefore, both server and desktop management IT groups will be impacted this month.

"Leading the pack this month, however, is Microsoft Vista with four critical vulnerabilities. Given the significant amount of code shared between Vista and Windows 7, it is likely that some of these security bulletins could apply to Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2, but this is not addressed in the information released today. Companies with access to the RTM builds will want to track the bulletins in the future to see if they are updated to apply to Windows 7 and Windows Release 2."
