Latest Security Bulletins From Microsoft Require Server Reboot

Lumension Security : 12 July, 2010  (Technical Article)
Alan Bentley of Lumension comments on the patches due to be released from Microsoft which address critical vulnerabilities and will require servers to be restarted
Yesterday Microsoft announced that next Tuesday they will release 4 security bulletins to address 5 separate current vulnerabilities. Three of these are rated critical, with one of the critically rated bulletins requiring a restart of server-class machines.

Alan Bentley, SVP international for Lumension comments: "Bulletin 1 and 2 both affect Microsoft Windows and are critical, as the vulnerabilities addressed could allow for remote code execution, typically the most-feared exploit type. Bulletin 2 will have a huge impact, as it affects Windows 7 desktop users and Windows 2008 R2 servers, which are Microsoft's most current and widely deployed desktop and server solutions. IT departments with Windows 7 and/or Windows 2008 R2 should be prepared to prioritise this bulletin.

"Bulletin 3 and 4 affect Microsoft Office. While Bulletin 3 is rated critical, fortunately its impact will be limited just to businesses that have built applications and processes using Microsoft Access, as this is the affected software. Bulletin 4 is only rated important, but we do want to strongly encourage users to pay attention to this since it addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft's hugely popular email client. Vulnerabilities in email clients are always a concern.

"The good news is that with the release of these 4 bulletins next week, Microsoft will take care of the 2 recent security advisories listed below and address the Help Center, Windows XP and Server 2003 vulnerabilities that have been under attack now for a few weeks."

* Microsoft is closing Security Advisory 2028859 (Vulnerability in Canonical Display Driver Could Allow Remote Code Execution)

* Microsoft is closing Security Advisory 2219475 (Vulnerability in Windows Help and Support Center Could Allow Remote Code Execution)
