A dozen Patch’s for Valentines Day

  • 15 February, 2007 08:34

<p>Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Microsoft is planning to release a big gift for IT administrators on Patch Tuesday - a dozen security bulletins with nine critical and three important. Five of the critical bulletins address Microsoft Windows, two affect Microsoft Office, one affects Data Access Components Technology and one affects Microsoft's new malware solution, Windows Live OneCare.</p>
<p>The fact that at least five of the vulnerabilities target the Microsoft applications further validates PatchLink's claims that hackers are moving up the application stack to focus less on attacking the operating system and exploiting the application layer. PatchLink further predicts that hackers with profit in mind will increasingly target applications beyond Microsoft platforms.</p>
<p>“With such a hefty burden this month, IT administrators need to put security first”, said Chris Wood, PatchLink ANZ Sales Director. “Organisations will need to have a solid vulnerability management process in place if they want to test and deploy the bulletins released tomorrow without disrupting any Valentine's Day plans.”</p>
