Microsoft Patches 31 Windows, IE, Office Security Holes
Ryan Naraine writes on the ZDNet "Zero Day" Blog:
Microsoft’s batch of patches this month is a big one: 10 bulletins covering a total of 31 documented vulnerabilities affecting the Windows OS, the Internet Explorer browser and the Microsoft Office productivity suite (Word, Works and Excel).More here.
Five of the 10 bulletins are rated “critical,” Microsoft’s highest severity rating. Among the patches this month are fixes for a pair of IIS WebDav flaws that were publicly disclosed last month and cover for the CanSecWest Pwn2Own vulnerability that was used to exploit Internet Explorer on Windows 7.
