Microsoft July Security Patch Release

Microsoft have released six patches with the July 2007 Security Patch Release. As per the pre-release information that was provided last week, Microsoft released three Critical patches, two Important patches, and one Moderate patch.

Although there are no known exploits for most of the issues (there are some minor exploits known for the IIS patch), it is expected that exploit data and detailed vulnerability code will be released over coming days by the researchers responsible for the discovery. It remains to be seen whether the suspected .NET 0-day will receive widespread release in coming days.

There were minor concerns of a new threat to Windows users after a release was made to a number of security mailing lists claiming to have a new 0-day targeting Internet Explorer, though this was later found to be closely related to known historical problems with the handling of different protocols by Internet Explorer (which lead to arbitrary code execution).

As with all other monthly patch releases, S?nnet Beskerming provides detailed patch summaries and briefs for all users.
