Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   May 9, 2007

May Security Bulletin covers wide range of vulnerabilities.

Microsoft's latest 'Patch Tuesday' security bulletin included fixes for seven vulnerabilities, all rated 'Critical' and allowing remote access to affected systems, which affect most of the company's major products.

The May release, unveiled yesterday, includes fixes for long-standing bugs in Excel spreadsheet software, word processor Word, the Office suite as a whole, the Internet Explorer browser, the Exchange mail server and the CAPICOM cryptography tool, as well as covering the well-publicised RPC hole in the Microsoft DNS Server service, first unveiled shortly after the last Patch Tuesday release and rapidly implemented into a worm.

Full details of the patches and the flaws they are designed to fix are in the security bulletin, here.
