With the AusCERT2012 conference now just a few weeks away, if you haven't
already done so it would be a good idea to register soon, as the early bird rate
finishes this coming Monday:
We've been treated to a sumptuous smorgasbord of patches this week thanks to
Microsoft, Google, Adobe, Samba, Oracle, Apple ... pretty much everyone!
Products you should patch now rather than reading this review would include Samba
(CVE-2012-1182) as it's a remote root compromise, Microsoft's Windows Common
Controls (MS12-027) as it's being actively exploited and Apple's OS X patch
for Java, to wind up the Flashback malware party.
Not wanting to be left out, VMware also have provided the VMSA-2012-0007 patch
to remedy a privilege escalation for many of their products.
Enjoy a good weekend,
Olivia and Marco
