MS patch overcomes network security flaw.

Lumension Security : 10 October, 2007  (Technical Article)
Microsoft has released important patches to overcome potential network security compromises.
Microsoft has released six patches this October's Patch Tuesday, four of which are critical and two are rated as important. All four of the critical patches address possible remote code execution exploits which can compromise network security.
Alan Bentley, Regional VP of Lumension EMEA (formerly PatchLink) comments:

'The most significant patch this Microsoft Patch Tuesday, is the cumulative update for Internet Explorer 5.01 - MS07-057. In fact, if you were to only adopt one patch this month, this is it. Organisations and consumers alike should focus on [the cumulative update] given the pervasiveness of Internet Explorer. The reality of the vulnerability is that you may think you've left a site, but to all intents and purposes you remain on that site.

"The denial of service vulnerability rated as "Important" has the potential to enable hackers to cripple internet-facing Microsoft servers. Any organisation with externally facing Microsoft web servers should take a very close look at the MS07-058 bulletin.'

"The release of four critical patches this October catch the attention of most IT administrators as a wide range of systems are affected, including Windows XP, Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2003, IE 6, IE 7 and more. However, IT administrators can not just stop at updating Microsoft. Sun has released a range of patches over the past week, meaning the attention to security should be significant this week.
