November 2010 Microsoft Security Updates

Microsoft will issue three security bulletins on Tuesday, November 9. One of the bulletins is rated critical; the other two are rated important.  The bulletins will address a total of 11 vulnerabilities.

Systems affected:

  • Microsoft Office for Windows XP SP3 through Office 2010
  • Microsoft Office for Mac 2011
  • Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway

No word has been released on patching the zero-day hole in Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 that has been used in targeted attacks, and was announced last week. Those who have not done so are urged to upgrade to IE 8, which includes Data Execution prevention technology that makes the flaw harder to exploit.
