MBSA 2.3 and the November 2013 Security Bulletin Webcast, Q&A, and Slide Deck

November 15th, 2013 No comments

Today we’re publishing the November 2013 Security Bulletin Webcast Questions & Answers page.  The majority of questions focused on the ActiveX Kill Bits bulletin (MS13-090) and the advisories. We also answered a few general questions that were not specific to any of this month’s updates, but that may be of interest.

We’ve discussed the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool in this and many other webcasts, and I’m happy to report version 2.3 is now available. This new version adds support for Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2. However, Windows 2000 systems will no longer be supported by MBSA. If you aren’t familiar with the tool or would just like to know more about it, we encourage you to read the FAQ found on the Security TechCenter. Thanks also go out to everyone who participated in the public preview leading up to this release.

We invite you to join us for the next scheduled webcast on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at 11 a.m. PST (UTC -8), when we will go into detail about the December bulletin release and answer your bulletin deployment questions live on the air.

Microsoft Customer Protections for May 2013

May 14th, 2013 No comments

Today, we are releasing 10 bulletins, addressing 33 vulnerabilities in Microsoft products. Before we get into the details, we wanted to first let our enterprise customers know about a change in how we’re communicating technical details within our security advisories. Starting today, customers will be able to clearly identify key security updates within advisories. For further details, please visit Knowledge Base article 2849195.

Let’s talk about the updates that we released today. Ten bulletins were released, two Critical and eight Important, addressing 33 vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Server and Tools, and .NET Framework. For those who need to prioritize deployment, we recommend focusing on MS13-037, MS13-038 and MS13-039 first. As always, customers should deploy all security updates as soon as possible. Our Bulletin Deployment Priority guidance is below to further assist in deployment planning (click for larger view).

MS13-037 | Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer
This security update resolves 11 issues in Internet Explorer that could allow remote code execution if a customer views a specially crafted Web page using the browser. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current administrator. This security update is rated Critical for all versions of Internet Explorer, on all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. These issues were privately disclosed and we have not detected any attacks or customer impact.

MS13-038 | Security Update for Internet Explorer
This security update permanently addresses the Internet Explorer 8 issue described in Security Advisory 2847140 to help ensure customers are protected. This security update is rated Critical for Internet Explorer 8 on Windows clients and Moderate for Internet Explorer 8 on Windows servers.  There is no severity rating for Internet Explorer 9. This issue was publicly disclosed and there are limited known targeted attacks. 

MS13-039 | Vulnerability in HTTP.sys Could Allow Denial of Service
This security update resolves one issue in Microsoft Windows that could allow denial of service if an attacker sends a specially crafted HTTP packet to an affected Windows server or client. The security update is rated Important for supported editions of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. This issue was privately disclosed and we have not detected any attacks or customer impact.

Watch the bulletin overview video below for a brief summary of today’s releases.
