Microsoft Security Bulletin MS10-008 - Critical

Cumulative Security Update of ActiveX Kill Bits (978262)

Published: February 09, 2010

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

  This security update addresses a privately reported vulnerability for 
  Microsoft software. This security update is rated Critical for all 
  supported editions of Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP, Important 
  for all supported editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7, Moderate for 
  all supported editions of Windows Server 2003, and Low for all supported 
  editions of Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. 

  The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a 
  specially crafted Web page that instantiates an ActiveX control with 
  Internet Explorer. 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 update also includes kill bits for four 
  third-party ActiveX controls.

  The security update addresses the vulnerability by setting a kill bit so 
  that the vulnerable control does not run in Internet Explorer. 

  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 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.
