MS Patch Tuesday

Today’s Patch Tuesday update is small.  This update includes a critical single bulletin and two important one.

MS 11-015 is rated critical and occurs in DirectShow, Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center.

MS 11-016 is listed as important. It is aimed to resolve a vulnerability with MS Groove. This vulnerability could allow an outside entity to remotely execute code if a user opens a legitimate file in the same network directory.

MS 11-017 is the final important update. This update has a vulnerability in Windows Remote Desktop Client that could allow remote code execution if a use opens a Remote Desktop configuration file (.rdp) located in the same network folder as a “specially library file,” according to Microsoft. “For an attack to be successful, a user must visit an untrusted remote file system location or WebDAV share and open a document from this location that is then loaded by a vulnerable application.”
