Microsoft Security Bulletin MS09-045 - Critical

Vulnerability in JScript Scripting Engine Could Allow Remote Code Execution 
(971961)

  Published: September 08, 2009

  Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

  This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the
  JScript scripting engine that could allow remote code execution if a user
  opened a specially crafted file or visited a specially crafted Web site and
  invoked a malformed script. If a user is logged on with administrative user
  rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take
  complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install
  programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user
  rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the
  system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative
  user rights.

  This security update is rated Critical for JScript 5.1 on Microsoft Windows 
  2000 Service Pack 4 and Critical for JScript 5.6, JScript 5.7 and JScript
  5.8 on all supported releases of the Windows operating system except Windows
  7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. For more information, see the subsection,
  Affected and Non-Affected Software, in this section.

  This security update addresses the vulnerability by modifying the way that
  the JScript engine processes scripts in Web pages. For more information
  about the vulnerability, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection
  for the specific vulnerability entry under the next section, Vulnerability
  Information.

  Recommendation. The majority of customers have automatic updating enabled
  and will not need to take any action because this security update will be
  downloaded and installed automatically. Customers who have not enabled
  automatic updating need to check for updates and install this update
  manually. For information about specific configuration options in automatic 
  updating, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 294871.

  For administrators and enterprise installations, or end users who want to
  install this security update manually, Microsoft recommends that customers
  apply the update immediately using update management software, or by checking
  for updates using the Microsoft Update service.

  See also the section, Detection and Deployment Tools and Guidance, later

Vulnerability Information
	
JScript Remote Code Execution Vulnerability - CVE-2009-1920

  A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the JScript
  scripting engine processes scripts in Web pages. The vulnerability could
  allow remote code execution if a user opened a specially crafted file or
  visited a Web site that is running a specially crafted script. If a user is
  logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully
  exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.
  An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or
  create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured
  to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who
  operate with administrative user rights.
