Microsoft Patch Tuesday Bulletins Fix 11 Vulnerabilities

Microsoft has released nine security bulletins as part of its Patch Tuesday software update scheme.

The nine bulletins fix 11 security vulnerabilities found on Microsoft software.

According to the advisory, four security bulletins were marked as critical, out which, MS10-061 and MS10-062 ran the greatest risk of being exploited in the wild.

MS10-061 addressed a vulnerability in the Printer Spooler service, which could allow remote code execution from a malicious print request, tech news site eWeek reports.

The other critical vulnerability most likely to be exploited in the wild, MS10-062, could allow remote code execution by exploiting a vulnerability found in the way in which MPEG-4 codec dealt with media files.

Dave Marcus of McAfee, said in a statement to eWeek: “There is a prevalence of sharing media and video files, so MS10–062 is of particular interest, as this media code execution takes advantage of vulnerabilities by crafting music files.”

The remaining two security bulletins that were marked critical were related to vulnerabilities found in the Unicode Scripts Processor and Microsoft Outlook. The rest of the security bulletins were labelled as 'important' and fixed vulnerabilities found in Windows.
