Windows Updates: July 2008

Thursday, July 10th, 2008 by | Filed Under: System Tune-Up Help

Windows Updates: July 2008

It’s that time again! Yep, the Windows Updates for July 2008 came through to most computers on Tuesday, July 8, 2008, so if you haven’t installed them yet, you better get to it. They’re probably sitting down there in your system tray just waiting for you to download them! Whether you’ve updated your computer yet or not, I’m sure you’re all curious to know what’s new this month, right? Well, come along with me and I’ll tell you!

There are four updates this month and they are all categorized as “important.” That’s right, no critical issues this time around! The first issue dealt with a vulnerability in Microsoft’s SQL server that could potentially allow elevation of privilege. The second was a vulnerability in Windows Explorer that could allow remote code execution. The third update involved vulnerabilities within DNS that could allow spoofing and the fourth issue had to do with vulnerabilities in the MS Outlook Web Access for Exchange server that could allow for elevation of privilege. Whew, that’s a lot!

Of course, all of those issues were fixed with this month’s Windows Updates, but you have to install them in order to reap the benefits! A few affected software and download locations were also taken care of, as well as, detection and deployment tools and guidance. And as always, the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool was also updated. That’s it. You’re now up to date for yet another month!
