MSVIDCTL (MS09-032) and the ATL vulnerability

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Today we have released Security Advisory 973882 that describes vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Active Template Library (ATL), as well as security updates for Internet Explorer (MS09-034) and Visual Studio (MS09-035). The Visual Studio update addresses several vulnerabilities in the public versions of the ATL headers and libraries. The IE update contains two defense in depth mitigations to help prevent exploitation of the ATL vulnerabilities described in Security Advisory 973882 and MS09-035 (the IE updates contains additional security fixes that are not related to the ATL issue).
