Microsoft Patch Tuesday Roundup - August 2011

A few interesting notes on this month's Microsoft Patch Tuesday release:

  • Windows DNS servers are vulnerable to remote exploitation. However, they must implement a specific configuration.
  • We've released a new plugin to detect the Remote Desktop Web Access service on Windows.
  • Another five vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer have been fixed. I believe this to be one of the more critical things to patch. While Microsoft claims there are no known exploits, no one can be certain.

To further aid in your efforts to evaluate the exposures presented by the vulnerabilities addressed by Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday, Tenable's Research team has published Nessus plugins for each of the security bulletins issued this month:
