Security advisory posted, and RSA thoughts.

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Hi everyone, Stepto here. (I’m giving up on the “Stephen Toulouse here” after many people I met at RSA greeted me as “Stepto”, but as a side note since I created the blog under “Stepto” please remember that posts made by individuals on the MSRC are made by themselves and not me.

MS06-007 update, and one year of blogging.

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

Hey folks, Stephen Toulouse here blogging live from San Jose, at the RSA 2006 security conference. First a quick update on the MS06-007 update issue Craig mentioned earlier. This situation is now resolved and customers should be able to get the update. I want to reiterate that the problem had nothing to do with the update itself, you applied it manually from the download center or got it through SUS 1.

Information on IE Drag and Drop Issue

Monday, February 13, 2006

Hey – Brian here, As we’re gearing up for release tomorrow I wanted to take a second to discuss a recent posting of a security issue to some mailing lists. Matt Murphy, a well known security researcher posted an alert today regarding a “drag and drop” issue affecting Windows. I actually handled this case and worked with Matt.

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on where you are.

Two new security advisories posted

Wednesday, February 08, 2006

Hi folks, Mike Reavey here. Just wanted to point out two new security advisories that we posted late last night. The first is related to a WMF vulnerability in older versions of Internet Explorer. This is different from the issue addressed by MS06-001 and only impacts older versions of Internet Explorer – if you’re using IE6SP1 or later, you’re protected from this issue.
