Four flaws fixed in minimal security update.
Microsoft's monthly 'Patch Tuesday' release of security updates for Windows and other software has been fairly quiet this month - with four patches released, only one of which is labelled 'Critical'.
The most serious issue is a vulnerability in the Microsoft Agent usability tool, which could be exploited to gain control of a system from a remote source. The other fixes, marked 'Important', cover Crystal Reports, Services for UNIX and MSN Messenger software.
Details of the latest patch release are in the Microsoft Security Bulletin, here. A McAfee blog entry carries a graph of updates released in recent years, showing a trend of small numbers of patches in September followed by a sizeable increase in the following months, here.
