Single bulletin planned for patch Tuesday

Lumension Security : 11 January, 2010  (Technical Article)
IT Administrators have a relatively light patch load this week as Microsoft releases just one bulletin to address a vulnerability in remote code execution
Following months of heavy Patches at the end of last year, January's Patch Tuesday is looking like less of a headache for IT administrators, comments Matthew Walker, Regional Director UK & Ireland, Lumension

"A belated Christmas present to all IT administrators is expected from Microsoft next Tuesday, in the form of what's expected to be the lightest Patch Tuesday we've seen in years. Only one bulletin is planned, addressing a remote code execution vulnerability only for Windows 2000 users that may require a restart. Let's hope that IT administrators can savour this unusually reduced patch release as they start the New Year. Perhaps they can use the time to prepare for the numerous updates and patches yet to come and also resolve the current SMB denial-of-service problems, the MySQL zero-day rumours and the latest Adobe PDF issue. Bear in mind that patches for these issues are around the corner. Just because they aren't being addressed with the first patch bulletin of the year doesn't mean that IT administrators should not keep a close eye out for them shortly."
