MSRC Blog: October 25th Update To Security Advisory 943521

Thursday, October 25, 2007

This change in the threat landscape has prompted us to update last week’s Security Advisory 943521 and triggered our Software Security Incident Response Plan (SSIRP). Third party applications are currently being used as the vector for attack and customers who have applied the security updates available from these vendors are currently protected.

As you have probably noted there’s been a fair amount of discussion on this issue. One of the reasons we are releasing this Advisory is due to increased risk given recent discussions about how this vulnerability could be used in attacks.
