Homeland Secure IT Alert for Thursday, September 30, 2010
Microsoft has addressed an important vulnerability in another “out of band” security update this week… This one is for the Microsoft .NET Framework and it affects every Microsoft operating system across the board from Windows XP, Vista and 7 desktop, to Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, regardless of service pack or patch level, and processor (32bit, 64bit, Itanium).
Left unpatched, an attacker could gain information from your system to read or even manipulate encrypted data from your web server.
The long and short of this – Update your systems. Run Microsoft Updates if they are not set to automatically install. System administrators should insure their servers are up to date.
The Microsoft Bulletin can be found HERE.
If you require assistance with this update or any others, please contact your computer service professional as a vulnerable network can cost more than downtime. If you are in the Greenville or Upstate SC area, Homeland Secure IT can provide your business with network and computer support.
