Microsoft updates are out for July



and they affect no fewer than 18 issues in Office and Windows. 13 issues are tagged as critical, others as important. They are all bundled into 7 update downloads. 8 vulnerabilities within Excel have been addressed in all of this. Office 2000 users will have to manually update (Office XP/2003 updates can be brought in through Microsoft Update.) It looks like the flaw I found most interesting was a remote code execution vulnerability in the DHCP client… .(Affects 2000/xp and 2003).


I thought it would be interesting if, today, on the last update day for Windows 98 and ME Microsoft released a big patch bundle to try and send off those OS’s with a good “bon voyage”…. alas… no. None of the core Windows updates seem to affect those versions, so it’s more of a “you’re on your own” send off for 98/ME users.

So, if you don’t have automatic updates going, visit Microsoft’s update site and prepare for some downloading.
