High impact patch due from Microsoft

Lumension Security : 12 May, 2008  (Technical Article)
Lumension advises administrators to use critical patches released by Microsoft this Tuesday for Windows Server and MS security products.
Microsoft has released its Advance Notification for May 2008. Alan Bentley, Regional VP of Lumension EMEA (formerly PatchLink) comments: "With just three critical and one moderate update, this is a relatively light Patch Tuesday in terms of volume. However, given that the critical bulletins deal with current platforms and operating systems, organisations should not be lax when rolling out this month's patches."

"The Jet bulletin is the critical patch that will have the widest impact because it affects Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003. When prioritising this month's patches, this will probably get the most attention because of the number of organisations running these systems and programs."

"The other two critical updates have a fairly narrow impact, only affecting Word 2000 and Publisher 2000. However, it is vital that organizations with wide-spread deployments of Word and/or Publisher 2000 pay close attention to these advisories and roll out the patches swiftly."

"Another interesting note about this month's bulletins is that some of Microsoft's own key security software—including Windows Defender, Forefront Security and Antigen—has been identified as requiring an important security update. Whenever security tools themselves are affected (even if they have been given 'moderate' status) we encourage customers to treat them with increased importance. Any company that relies on these programs as part of their overall security posture should pay close attention to this update."
