Quiet time for Microsoft security patches.

Lumension Security : 14 November, 2007  (Technical Article)
Two security patches for Microsoft products have been released including one to plug a remote code execution vulnerability in the operating system.
Microsoft has released two patches this November Patch Tuesday, one critical and one important, both affecting Windows.

Alan Bentley, Regional VP of Lumension EMEA (formerly PatchLink) comments:

'Today's light Patch Tuesday will be a welcome delight for IT administrators as just one critical Microsoft OS vulnerability (MS07-061) has been released, a critical remote code execution, which needs to be patched immediately. However administrators have not been given breathing space, as several other application vulnerabilities have come to light in recent weeks. These include remote code execution holes in QuickTime, a vulnerability in Macrovision's Flexnet product and remote code execution holes in Adobe Acrobat."

"For companies that have upgraded to Windows Vista in recent months, Microsoft is taking advantage on this quiet Patch Tuesday to release non-security updates for Microsoft Vista. One of the updates extends the battery life for mobile devices, improves stability of wireless network services, and shortens recovery time after Windows Vista experiences a period of inactivity. Companies looking to upgrade to the latest improvements in Vista should schedule the updates for a time that doesn't interrupt the daily work flow."
