IT administrators have their hands full today

  • 13 April, 2007 09:55

<p>“With five of the bulletins released this month being critical, all of which allow remote access execution and with the addition of out-of-cycle patch, IT administrators have their hands full today.</p>
<p>“Microsoft is making progress on addressing vulnerabilities in its legacy applications with MS07-019 and MS07-020 fixing XP/2000 software defects. However, the MS07-017 and MS07-021 patches show that there continues to be problems with Vista.</p>
<p>“Organisations need to take notice that although Vista is more secure, it is certainly not immune from vulnerabilities. PatchLink recommends that organisations prioritise deploying the Vista-related, MS07-017 and MS07-021, patches ASAP.</p>
<p>“Since all five critical patches are for remote code execution, which is oftentimes a vehicle for botnets and other targeted attacks, it is essential that organisations remediate these vulnerabilities quickly.”</p>
