SSL flaw amongst vulnerabilities to be patched on Tuesday

Lumension Security : 09 November, 2009  (Technical Article)
Lumension comments on the three critical patches which Microsoft will deliver on Tuesday
Microsoft plans to patch three critical security flaws on Tuesday. Andrew Clarke, Senior VP Lumension, comments:

"While many IT departments are still working through the large number of patches delivered last month from Microsoft, Oracle, Adobe and others, here is where we currently stand for November."

"Microsoft is delivering three critical patches and three important patches, none of which impact Windows 7. Three of the November patches, however, appear to be updates to or re-releases of patches that were issued last month including Live Communications Server 2005 and Office Communications Server 2007, as well as scenarios involving the usage of Windows Server Update Services or running Microsoft Office Access Runtime 2003."

"In addition to Microsoft's round of patches, a bug has been discovered in Linux that gives untrusted users root access. Red Hat has patches available for versions four and five of RHEL and MRG. Another recently discovered SSL flaw, which aids in facilitating a man-in-the-middle attack, is expected to bring a large number of patches in the near term from multiple vendors. We won't see anything to remediate this flaw on Patch Tuesday, but if a number of active exploits start to appear in the wild, then we will most likely see out-of-band patches issued from pretty much every vendor as it is such a widely used protocol.

"On 4 November Microsoft re-patched Internet Explorer, the third time it's been forced to repair one of the updates from its largest-ever bug fix, which was delivered on 13 October."
