There is just one update flagged as critical that affects Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7.
Microsoft’s Jerry Bryant also admitted on his publication of the updates, that Microsoft was still yet to patch a DOS (Denial of Service) bug, which the company had been talking publically since November 2009.
The security patch is to fix a bug in Windows 7 that makes it possible to lock-up unpatched system. A system crash then begins, but unusually without a Blue Screen of Death or any other visible indication that anything is wrong.
”We are still working on an update for the issue at this time. We are not aware of any active attacks using the exploit code that was made public for this vulnerability and continue to encourage customers to follow the guidance in the advisory which outlines best practices to help protect systems against attacks that originate outside of the enterprise perimeter,” he said.
Users are highly recommended to go through the update process as soon as possible.
