Summary of Microsoft’s monthly security bulletin release for June 2009

imageIn case you somehow caught a sudden case of amnesia and forgot that we were releasing the June security bulletins yesterday you’re in luck – The Microsoft Security Response Center team just posted details on everything you need to know about what the updates do and considerations to take into account when deploying them.  I have their brief intro and a link below:


Today we released 10 new security bulletins. 6 of those affect Windows with two rated as critical, three rated as important and one as moderate. The remaining four all have an aggregate rating of critical and affect Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office Excel and Microsoft Works Converters.

In addition to these new bulletins, we are releasing the remaining updates for MS09-017 which now includes updates for Microsoft Office for Mac (versions 2004 and 2008) and Microsoft Works 8.5 and 9.0. You may recall that we released this bulletin last month with updates only for versions of PowerPoint that run on Windows. Please refer to last month’s bulletin blog post for more information.
