Microsoft throws patches out of software pram

Posted on Wednesday, June 15 2005 @ 17:53:30 CEST by

Software Colossus Microsoft has issued 10 security warnings about its super soar away software. In the monthly rite of self examination known as "Patch Tuesday", the Vole released 10 security bulletins, three of them about critical flaws, or bugs as everyone else calls them.

Flaw is often used to suggest a defect in a diamond but only the absurdly naive could describe Windows software as a gem [Shorely, GEM, Ed.].

'Critical' means that it is a hole that could let attackers take complete control over a computer system without the need for much in the way of brain power on the part of the hacker. All three criticals affect Windows, so the patch is pretty important.

Other, more minor, glitches were connected to Windows, Exchange, services for the Unix operating system, Microsoft's Interactive Training software for Windows, and ISA server. Also Vole has felt the need to re-release three ancient security bulletins for Windows,.NET and one for an SQL server. Some of these old bulletins fix bugs, or "flaws" which are as old as Windows 98, but seem to have dropped off most machines somehow. Read more at Xmodding. The patches can be found here.
