Microsoft Patch Tuesday – May 2010

Post by Chris Silva May 11, 2010

Well, as mentioned on Thursday, it was a relatively small Patch Tuesday from Microsoft. Here are our recommendations for the two security updates. You can find our full write-up in newsletter format here.

MS10-030 – Vulnerability in Outlook Express and Windows Mail Could Allow Remote Code Execution (978542)

Administrators are urged to roll out this patch as soon as possible to vulnerable systems, especially since this vulnerability is now publicly disclosed. Until this is done, users are recommended to use a web-based email interface, instead of a client-sided email application, such as Microsoft Outlook.

MS10-031 – Vulnerability in Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications Could Allow Remote Code Execution (978213)

Administrators are urged to roll out this patch as soon as possible to vulnerable systems. In the mean time, administrators should restrict access to VBE6.dll. By doing this, embedded ActiveX controls will be prevented from running inside Microsoft Office documents.

eEye Digital Security will be holding a vulnerability expert forum (VEF) Wednesday May 12 at 11AM PDT. The vulnerability expert forum is a live webcast where the eEye research team will discuss these patches and additional security landscape topics. Be sure to sign up in advance.
