New critical patch addresses Microsoft Outlook vulnerabilities.

Lumension Security : 12 March, 2008  (Company News)
Microsoft releases four critical patches addressing vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Web Components.
Alan Bentley, Regional VP of Lumension EMEA (formerly PatchLink) comments:

'Today's Patch Tuesday provides a breather from last month's huge release, but because all four patches this month are critical, IT administrators will have to look at each of them closely.'

'Furthermore, because all four of the patches affect Microsoft Office, these patches cannot be ignored or delayed. Microsoft Office is the leading productivity suite in use by the majority of organisations from small businesses to global enterprises, so these critical patches should be seriously considered for immediate deployment by all organisations. The broad install base of Microsoft Office makes Office vulnerabilities an enticing target for hackers and cyber criminals.'

'Microsoft Outlook is the dominant email client in use today, and email is also one of the most common attach vehicles used by hackers against organisations. This makes MS08-015, a critical, remote-code-execution vulnerability that affects virtually all versions of Outlook, the biggest priority for IT administrators this Patch Tuesday. This vulnerability affects all versions of Outlook, including Outlook 2007 running on Windows XP and Vista.'
