By this time, Microsoft has already released the updates that will fix vulnerabilities in some of its products. Some of those that are affected by these fixes are the vulnerability in DirectShow that was first mentioned in May and also zero-day vulnerability that was only noticed in the last few days.
it should be noted that three of the six bulletins that Microsoft issued directly affect Windows and are considered critical fixes for both Windows XP and Windows 2000. Actually, even the first one, which has been given the Windows 1 tag has been identified as critical on practically all Windows platforms. The second flaw is for the aforementioned DirectX capability. The last one, on the other hand is critical on Windows XP and moderate threat on Windows Server 2003. The remaining three vulnerabilities are considered not very crucial but still should be addressed though.
So if you guys haven’t installed these new updates yet and you didn’t activate automatic updating, go and visit the Microsoft site and download these fixes.
