It’s the first Wednesday of the month, and that means more security bulletins from Microsoft. This month’s come in two emails titled “Microsoft Windows Security Bulletin Summary for November 2003” and “Microsoft Office Security Bulletin Summary for November 2003” and consist of
- MS03-048 – Cumulative Update for Internet Explorer (824145)
- MS03-049 – Buffer Overrun in the Workstation Service Could Allow
Code Execution (828749)
- MS03-050 – Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Word and Microsoft
Excel Could Allow Arbitrary Code to run (831527)
- MS03-051 – Buffer Overrun in Microsoft FrontPage Server
Extensions Could Allow Code Execution (813360)
All result in “Remote Code Execution” which certainly sounds like a bad thing to me.
You’ll find copies of the bulletins at: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/winnov03.asp and http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/offnov03.asp.
It’s the 46th week of the year.
