Patch Tuesday June 2012: RDP broken, again. Stuxnet TTF, again.

Post by Peter McCalister June 12, 2012

This is shaping up to be an interesting Patch Tuesday with critical vulnerabilities being released across a combination of operating system components and client applications. In total there are 7 Microsoft Security Bulletins covering 26 distinct vulnerabilities in this June 2012 Microsoft Patch Tuesday. More than half of these vulnerabilities are rated as being likely to be exploited by Microsoft. On top of all of the vulnerability fixes Microsoft has also added an automatic updater capability for determining if a system has any certificates that are no longer trustworthy. This shows an increasing seriousness at which Microsoft is looking at the variety of certificate related vulnerabilities that have plagued its customers over the last few years.

Read in more detail about RDP, IE, Stuxnet/Duqu TrueType Font and the other vulnerabilities being discussed tomorrow during our Vulnerability Expert Forum.
