September 2008 Updates

Monday, September 15th, 2008 by | Filed Under: System Tune-Up Help

September 2008 Updates

I’m sure you all know this by now, but the Windows Updates for September 2008 came out last Tuesday (September 9, 2008) and if you haven’t already installed them, you should definitely do so soon. The updates were limited this month, but they are still very important. So, if you’d like to know what all changed on your computer for the month of September, keep reading and you’ll find out!

According to the security bulletin posted by Microsoft, there were four critical updates this time around. The first one dealt with a vulnerability in the Windows Media Player program that could allow for remote code execution. The second one fixed vulnerabilities in GDI+ that could allow for remote code execution. The third update took care of a vulnerability in Windows Media Encoder 9 that could allow for remote code execution and the fourth one handled a vulnerability in Microsoft Office that could allow for remote code execution.

Now, I know those may not sound as serious as some of the updates you’ve seen in the past, but if you have those applications on your computer, they’re necessary to have. Along with those, the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool was also updated and a few other small changes were made as well. Again, if you haven’t gotten the most recent Windows Updates yet, I urge you to install them ASAP. Stay safe!
