Microsoft Monthly Updates

Microsoft has released the first in a series of "monthly" updates in an effort to make things easier on system administrators and support people who must upgrade hundreds of thousands of machines. This article from CNET News details the why and where of this new change in MS policy.

Today's updates include:

MS03-043: Buffer Overrun in Messenger Service Could Allow Code Execution

MS03-044: Buffer Overrun in Windows Help and Support Center Could Lead to System Compromise

MS03-042: Buffer Overflow in Windows Troubleshooter ActiveX Control Could Allow Code Execution

MS03-045: Buffer Overrun in the ListBox and in the ComboBox Control Could Allow Code Execution

MS03-008: Flaw in Windows Script Engine May Allow Code to Run

Please arrange to update your Windows system as soon as possible to close these security holes.
