BACKGROUND

HP Compaq business notebook PCs and HP, HP Pavilion, and Compaq Presario

preinstalled. Quick Launch Buttons enable and control features such as 
Function (Fn) shortcut keys and dedicated program buttons (i.e. 
Presentation Mode and HP Info buttons) that vary by model. The Quick 
Launch Button software package also includes the HP Info Center application 
that enables quick access to pertinent system information on HP Compaq 
business notebook PC models.

RESOLUTION
HP has provided the following software updates to resolve this vulnerability.
