Critical: MS07-036 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS07-036.mspx)

This critical update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability and two privately reported vulnerabilities in addition to other security issues identified during the course of the investigation. These vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Excel file. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

Critical: MS07-039 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS07-039.mspx)

This critical security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in implementations of Active Directory on Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 that could allow remote code execution or a denial of service condition. Attacks attempting to exploit this vulnerability would most likely result in a denial of service condition. However remote code execution could be possible. On Windows Server 2003 an attacker must have valid logon credentials to exploit this vulnerability. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts.

Critical: MS07-040 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS07-040.mspx)

This update resolves three privately reported vulnerabilities. Two of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution on client systems with .NET Framework installed, and one could allow information disclosure on Web servers running ASP.NET. In all remote code execution cases, users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

Important: MS07-037 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS07-037.mspx)

This important security update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability. This vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user viewed a specially crafted Microsoft Office Publisher file. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability.

Important: MS07-041 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS07-041.mspx)

This important security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability. This vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker sent specially crafted URL requests to a Web page hosted by Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.1 on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2. IIS 5.1 is not part of a default install of Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of the affected system.

Moderate: MS07-038 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS07-038.mspx)

This moderate security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability. This vulnerability could allow incoming unsolicited network traffic to access a network interface. An attacker could potentially gather information about the affected host.

This security update addresses the vulnerability by modifying the Windows Vista firewall default behavior to block unsolicited traffic communicating over the Teredo interface.




 

I am the dreadful menace. The one whose will is done. The haunting chill upon your neck. I am the Conundrum.
