Homeland Secure IT Alert for Thursday, March 3, 2011
Microsoft issued the Advance Notification for March 2011 and today… The full version of the Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification for March 2011 can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms11-mar.mspx.
The advanced notification will be replaced with the March bulletin summary on March 8, 2011.
On the Critical list are updates for remote code execution that affects: XP SP3, XP Professional x64 SP2, Vista SP1 & SP2, Vista x64 SP1 & SP2, Windows 7 for 32/64bit & SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64 & SP1.
So basically, a little something for all current Microsoft Windows systems. Watch for these updates on “Patch Tuesday”…
Before our Linux and Macintosh friends begin gloating, there may be something for them too if they are using Mozilla Firefox as their browser.
Mozilla released a Firefox update this week that addressed 11 vulnerabilities which could have allowed an attacker to execute code and install software without user interaction beyond the scope of browsing.
If you are using Firefox, be sure to update to 3.6.14 to insure your security.
