Microsoft Updates for Multiple Vulnerabilities

   Original release date: February 12, 2008
   Last revised: February 12, 2008
   Source: US-CERT

Systems Affected

     * Microsoft Windows
     * Microsoft Internet Explorer
     * Microsoft Office
     * Microsoft Visual Basic
     * Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS)

Overview

   Microsoft  has  released updates that address critical vulnerabilities
   in  Microsoft  Windows,  Internet  Explorer,  Office, Visual Basic and
   Internet   Information   Services   (IIS).   Exploitation   of   these
   vulnerabilities  could  allow  a  remote,  unauthenticated attacker to
   execute   arbitrary   code,  gain  elevated  privileges,  or  crash  a
   vulnerable system.

I. Description

   Microsoft  has released updates to address vulnerabilities that affect
   Microsoft   Windows,  Internet  Explorer,  Office,  Visual  Basic  and
   Internet  Information Services (IIS) as part of the Microsoft Security
   Bulletin  Summary  for  February 2008. The most severe vulnerabilities
   could  allow  a  remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary
   code.  For  more  information,  see  the  US-CERT  Vulnerability Notes
   Database.

II. Impact

   A  remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code, gain
   elevated privileges, or cause a denial of service.

III. Solution

Apply updates from Microsoft

   Microsoft  has  provided  updates  for  these  vulnerabilities  in the
   February  2008 security bulletins. The security bulletins describe any
   known  issues related to the updates. Administrators are encouraged to
   note  these  issues  and  test  for  any  potentially adverse effects.
   Administrators  should consider using an automated update distribution
   system such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
