Default Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-067 EMERGENCY Fix released today

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../MS08-067.mspx



http://bink.nu/news/be-aware-microso...tch-today.aspx

Microsoft notified me that they will release an emergency security patch later today.

Thursday October 23rd, 17:00 GMT (That is 19:00 for GMT+1+summertime)

All Microsoft said is that the vulnerability can be remotely exploited by malware.

Microsoft advices every Windows user / administrator to update their machines

Every currently supported Windows version is affected, so:

Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Vista, Windows 2008, 2008 Core.

I'm not sure if all editions are affected, but it does look like it, so also Windows Embedded? Windows CE ? 2008 Core installation? Hyper-V Server?

To my knowlegde this is only the second time that Microsoft has released an out of band security patch.

Thanks. On Vista x86/x64 and W2k8 server, this hotfix is listed as "Important" only though, not "Critical".

The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting the way that the Server service handles RPC requests.
