Today we published our advance notification for the June security bulletin release, scheduled for release next Tuesday, June 8. This month’s release includes ten bulletins addressing 34 vulnerabilities.
Six of the bulletins affect Windows; of those, two carry a Critical severity rating and four are rated Important.
Two bulletins, both with a severity rating of Important, affect Microsoft Office.
One bulletin, again with a severity rating of Important, affects both Windows and Office.
One bulletin, with a severity rating of Critical, affects Internet Explorer.
As ever, we recommend that customers prepare for the testing and deployment of these bulletins as soon as possible.
We will also be acting on two Security Advisories this month.
We are closing Security Advisory 983438 (Vulnerability in Microsoft SharePoint Could Allow Elevation of Privilege) with the June bulletins.
We are also addressing Security Advisory 980088 (Vulnerability in Internet Explorer Could Allow Information Disclosure).
Please join Adrian Stone and me for a public webcast on Wednesday next week where we will go into detail about the bulletins and answer questions live on the air. Register at the link below:
Date: Wednesday June 9
Time: 11:00 a.m. PDT (UTC –7)
Finally, we remind Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP2 customers once again that all support for these platforms will end after July 13, 2010 – that is, next month. Customers should upgrade to either a supported operating system or the latest service pack in order to keep receiving necessary security updates.
