Patch released for Vista mail programme.

Lumension Security : 13 June, 2007  (Technical Article)
Four patches issued by Microsoft include critical patches for Windows server 2003 and Windows Vista mail programme.
Microsoft has released four critical patches this June Patch Tuesday, including one patch for the Mail program in Vista, one affecting Internet Explorer and one affecting Windows Server 2003.

Alan Bentley, Managing Director of PatchLink EMEA comments: "The most critical patch (MS07-031) that organisations need to take care of is the one affecting Windows Server 2003, as this allows a hacker to take down an affected system by launching a denial-of-service attack. Organisations only need to look to the recent attacks suffered by the main Estonia bank and several Estonian Government websites, to realise the potential damage of leaving your network vulnerable to DOS attacks."

'For organisations that have upgraded to Vista, the Mail program vulnerability will force organisations to decide between possibly impacting the availability of email or waiting until the end of the working week for the normal maintenance time to apply this patch. Whilst Vista was developed with security in mind, organisations need to be prepared to fix glitches in the software - no developer can make thousands of lines of codes completely secure.'
