Microsoft Updates for September 2009 Posted by Response @ 10:56 GMT

It's the second Tuesday of the month, which means it's time for Microsoft Updates.

Five remotely exploitable vulnerabilities are detailed in this month's Security Bulletin.

All five are Critical and different platforms of Windows are affected. Among the affected vulnerabilities are Scripting JScript, ActiveX control, Media format files reading component, and WLAN AutoConfig Service.

But the big one is the TCP/IP stack processing vulnerability. This is the one that was discussed in the T2'08 conference by Jack C. Louis and Robert E. Lee.

Sadly Jack passed away before he could see his work published.
