July 2013 Patch Recommendations

7 Security Bulletins were released – 6 Critical, 1 Important, and 0 Moderate

This Month In Brief

We have not uncovered any widespread problems with any of these patches and are releasing all of them.

This is an important patch Tuesday. Although the number of bulletins is not remarkable, 6 of the 7 are rated Critical and no machine will go “untouched”. MS13-053 affect all operating systems. MS13-052 affects Internet Explorer 6 – 10. These two are the top priority. Expect all of you machines to need a reboot after patches are applied.

MS13-053 is the fix for the Tavis Ormandy zero-day flaw that made the news last month after “He made the zero-day flaw public, citing Microsoft as being ‘often very difficult to work with,’ and ‘treat[ing] vulnerability researchers with great hostility.’ ” For more on the unfolding drama see – “Microsoft reports hackings linked to report by Google researcher” (http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/09/us-microsoft-google-cybersecurity-idUSBRE9681AP20130709)
