Six patch updates released in July

This month’s Patch Tuesday saw the release of six new bulletins, two of which address zero-day flaws.

Updates MS09-028 through 033 patch vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, ISA Server, Internet Explorer and Virtual PC. The two zero-days affect DirectShow video streaming software and a new Video Controller ActiveX control. Both have been targeted by attackers recently.

You can get the details on this month’s bulletins by checking out’s preview from last week, and download them via Microsoft’s website.

Not included in the July bundle is a fix for a new flaw in Microsoft’s Office Web Components, which can give an attacker full user rights of a system. An automatic workaround has been issued while Microsoft works on a permanent patch for the flaw, which affects a number of Microsoft Office products.
