Microsoft updates for May



It looks as though there are two critical updates to be had today, one moderate/low (depending on the OS version.) The critical updates are one biggy for Exchange server which is reported to break some functionality with regards to Blackberry -> exchange server integration… This is an obviously important patch to get in since the vulnerability would allow for remote code execution. The other critical patch….


Fixes a Flash vulnerability in version 6… from the Security Fix

The Flash patch being distributed by Redmond fixes two serious vulnerabilities present in versions 6.0.79 or earlier installed on either Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME or Windows XP (Flash is installed by default on all of those). To see what version you have installed, check out this link.

This patch also includes the security fixes for Flash versions 7.x and 8.x that Adobe released in March. If you applied those patches, you shouldn’t have to update, but just check your Flash version anyway to be sure. The most recent safe version of Flash is 8.0.24.0.

The last update is a vulnerability in MDTC (Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator) which could allow a denial of service. Moderate for Windows 2000. Low for XP, 2003. So, get to patching.
