Microsoft released 11 security bulletins for February 2008, six are rated critical and five are important. My Windows XP Pro SP2 installation received the following updates through Windows Update:
MS08-010 – Cumulative Update for Internet Explorer (critical)
MS08-007 – Vulnerability in WebDAV Mini-Redirector Could Allow Remote Code Execution (critical)
MS08-008 – Vulnerability in OLE Automation Could Allow Remote Code Execution (critical)
A reboot was required.
I’m running the Windows Vista SP1 Release Candidate so I didn’t get any updates on that machine. I don’t run MS Office apps so I avoided those updates too. I’m all updated out so I’m not going to cover the other updates. Suffice it to say that any copies of Windows or Office you have will get updated. For more information you can read CNet’s article which has the Cliff Notes version of the MS Bulletins.
