Microsoft Patch Tuesday: 7 Security Bulletins 

By Brian Prince

Three of the seven Patch Tuesday bulletins are critical, including one 
affecting multiple versions of IE.

Microsoft is prepping a security update for the June 10 Patch Tuesday 
with seven bulletins, including three rated "critical" for issues 
affecting Internet Explorer, DirectX and Bluetooth.

Microsoft did not release any details of the security issues in its 
monthly notification, but all three bulletins address vulnerabilities 
that allow for remote code execution. The IE bulletin affects a number 
of versions of the browser, including Windows Internet Explorer 7, 
across the Windows 2000, Vista, XP and Windows Server 2003 and 2008 

The DirectX bulletin similarly affects those five platforms, while the 
Bluetooth bulletin affects only Vista and XP.

Also included in the Patch Tuesday update will be three bulletins rated 
"important" that deal with vulnerabilities in PGM, Active Directory and 
WINS. The vulnerabilities involving PGM and Active Directory can cause a 
denial-of-service condition, while the WINS bulletin addresses an 
escalation-of-privileges situation.

The final bulletin, rated "moderate," deals with Kill Bit and can result 
in remote code execution.

Microsoft issued four security bulletins in May for Patch Tuesday. The 
seven slated to be issued June 10 would bring the total number of 
bulletins to 36 so far in 2008.
