Microsoft Update day for September…. AND Flash… AND Apple



Yesterday, of course, Microsoft released it’s monthly patches. I found the Windows update site to be painfully slow (and in some cases unresponsive.) It wasn’t quite a huge update day by recent standards, but here’s the summary…. Incidents.org has a nice chart showing the two re-released patches (one is actually re-re-released…) They are MS06-040 (server service patch – critical) and MS06-042 (IE 6 patch). Both of those vulnerabilities addressed are well known and could be actively exploited. The “first release” updates from this month affect Microsoft Queue System MS06-052 which is the most important of the releases….


Also affected is MS06-053 which relates to Microsoft’s Indexing service. In non-core windows updates… there is an update for Publisher MS06-054 that is ranked as critical. None of THIS months updates are known to be actively exploited at the moment, but it’s probably just a matter of time.

The securityfix has details on these as well. I notice Brian also dug a bit deeper to find the “other” non-security related updates, which are: a stability related audio fix for XP and a fix for certain errors related to the updating process.

But, Microsoft isn’t the only company releasing patches on the second Tuesday this month…. Adobe has issued a security advisory related to Flash, version 9.0.16.0 “highly recommended”, for linux users there is an update to the 7.x line of Flash players.

Apple is in on the act as well…. Quicktime 7.1.3 is released which fixes 7 vulnerabilities. (For Windows and Mac). By the way, this usually isn’t mentioned, but it might be worth remembering that if you’re running windows applications via wine (crossover or otherwise), you should probably keep up with updates as well. (Updates for the Windows application as well as the wine software.)

Happy patch day/week… “as if millions of pc’s suddenly logged off and rebooted….”
