Microsoft says, Emergency Patch on Tuesday
Due to a large number of attacks over the weekend Microsoft(MSFT) announced they will release a patch tomorrow to address the recent Animated Cursor Vulnerability that was made public last week.
According to Christopher Budd with the Microsoft Security Response Blog
“I mentioned on Friday that this issue was first brought to us in late December 2006 and we’ve been working on our investigation and a security update since then. This update was previously scheduled for release as part of the April monthly release on April 10, 2007. Due to the increased risk to customers from these latest attacks, we were able to expedite our testing to ensure an update is ready for broad distribution sooner than April 10.”
Thanks to all the folks who left comments to my post on Friday, Animated Cursors, Yet Another Zero-Day Vulnerability. If you have installed any 3rd party solutions, be sure to Uninstall them before this update.
