Microsoft Patch Tuesday Roundup - June 2010 - “Everything is Vulnerable” Edition

Here we go again - another massive “Patch Tuesday”, brought to you by Microsoft. This particular bundle addresses 34 vulnerabilities in Windows, IE, Office, .NET Framework, IIS and Sharepoint, a tie for the largest vulnerability count in a single Microsoft Patch Tuesday to date. The advisories include a wide range of vulnerabilities including code execution, privilege escalation, information disclosure, denial of service and cross-site scripting (XSS).

Among the vulnerabilities addressed in June’s updates are two issues that were recognized by Microsoft in February and April. Three of the ten updates have been given severity ratings of “critical” while the other seven are rated as “important”. Six updates affect the Windows operating system, including Microsoft’s newest OS, Windows 7. As always, Tenable has released Nessus plugins to perform credentialed checks to detect each of these vulnerabilities and help aid your remediation processes.
