Microsoft Updates for Multiple Vulnerabilities

   Original release date: May 11, 2010
   Last revised: --
   Source: US-CERT


Systems Affected

     * Microsoft Outlook Express
     * Microsoft Windows Mail
     * Microsoft Windows Live Mail
     * Microsoft Office
     * Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications
     * third-party software that uses Visual Basic for Applications


Overview

   Microsoft has released updates to address vulnerabilities in
   Microsoft Outlook Express, Microsoft Windows Mail, Microsoft
   Windows Live Mail, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Visual Basic for
   Applications.


I. Description

   Microsoft has released security bulletins for multiple
   vulnerabilities in Microsoft Outlook Express, Microsoft Windows
   Mail, Microsoft Windows Live Mail, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft
   Visual Basic for Applications. These bulletins are described in the
   Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for May 2010.

   Third-party software that distributes VBE6.DLL may also be
   affected. If the third-party application follows the best practices
   for using a shared component as a side-by-side assembly, then the
   component will be updated by the update provided by MS10-031.
   Otherwise, you should contact the vendor to obtain an updated
   version of the application with the fixed VBE6.DLL file.


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 May 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).
