Patch Tuesday Updates Fix Critical Flaws in IE and DirectShow

Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday for June 2010 is here. Microsoft released a total of 10 new security bulletins, addressing 34 separate vulnerabilities, including critical flaws in DirectShow and the Internet Explorer Web browser. Let’s turn to some industry experts and security professionals for additional insight on the Microsoft security bulletins, and perspective on how to prioritize and protect against the potential threats.

Seven of the security bulletins are rated as Important, while the remaining three are Critical. The Critical security bulletins include MS10-033 for DirectShow, and MS10-035 which addresses six different vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer.

Joshua Talbot, security intelligence manager for Symantec Security Response, points out that “This is the largest Microsoft patch release of 2010 and ties the record for the most vulnerabilities ever addressed in a single month; a record set in October of last year. This month’s release also features the largest ever single bulletin, with 14 vulnerabilities in Excel being addressed together.”
