And with the heavy June showers, we have a similarly weighted Patch Tuesday from Microsoft. Sixteen updates will be released tomorrow (roughly 18:00 GMT) with the following profile;
- Nine Critical Updates
- Seven Important Updates
As usual, all of the patches rated as Critical relate to "Remote Code Execution" vulnerabilities. This is now a pretty common issue with products as this security vulnerability is generally related to late binding DLL loading issues. Given that a significant chunk of these issues can be resolved by "hard" specifying the correct directory location - I wonder if this issue will be resolved with the "Next Version of Windows"?
Another slightly amusing extract from this update is that one of the affected pieces of software a Critical Update is Microsoft's Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway. In this case, whether you find this amusing or not, depends on whether you work for Microsoft or not.
Here is a list of some of the Microsoft Products that will be affected by the June Patch Tuesday update;
- Microsoft Windows
- Microsoft .NET Framework
- Microsoft Silverlight
- Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway
- Internet Explorer
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft SQL Server
- Microsoft Visual Studio
