February monthly security bulleting release

I just saw that the folks over on the MSRC blog just posted the info for the February security bulleting release.  I stole the details below from them but you can read their entire post here.


Today we’re releasing four new security bulletins as part of our regular monthly release process.

  • MS09-002 rated Critical that addresses two code execution vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer.
  • MS09-003 rated Critical that addresses one code execution vulnerability and one denial of service vulnerability in Exchange Server.
  • MS09-004 rated Important that addresses one code execution vulnerability in SQL Server.
  • MS09-005 rated Important that addresses three code execution vulnerabilities in Visio.

We’re also releasing Microsoft Security Advisory 960715 that announces the release of a new cumulative update for killbits on third-party ActiveX controls.

This month’s edition of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) adds the ability to remove the Win32/Srizbi family of trojans. Again this month, our colleagues over at the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) have information on this month’s MSRT addition on their weblog.
