Microsoft Updates for Multiple Vulnerabilities

   Original release date: 
   Last revised: --
   Source: US-CERT


Systems Affected

     * Microsoft Windows
     * Microsoft Office


Overview

   Microsoft has released updates to address vulnerabilities in
   Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office.


I. Description

   Microsoft has released security bulletins for multiple
   vulnerabilities in Microsoft Movie Maker, Microsoft Office Producer
   2003, and Microsoft Office Excel. These bulletins are described in
   the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for March 2010. Microsoft
   notes that affected versions of Microsoft Movie Maker were either
   included with Microsoft Windows or available as an optional
   download.


II. Impact

   A remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code or
   cause a vulnerable application to crash.


III. Solution

   Apply updates from Microsoft
   
   Microsoft has provided updates for these vulnerabilities in the
   Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for March 2010. The security
   bulletin describes 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).
   
   Microsoft notes that there is no security update available for
   Microsoft Producer 2003 at this time of this writing. Users can
   mitigate the impact to systems with Microsoft Producer 2003 by
   applying the automated solution to remove the Microsoft Producer
   file associations using the Fix it found in Microsoft Knowledge
   Base Article 975561, and by applying the workarounds in Microsoft
   Security Bulletin MS10-016.
