Microsoft About to Patch Last Year Vulnerability!

Microsoft is preparing for a relatively modest Patch Tuesday with only three security bulletins.

Among the three there are only one rated “critical”, while the other two are “important”. The critical bulletin, as well as one of the bulletins classified as important, affects Microsoft Windows. The other bulletin affects Microsoft Office.

“The upcoming Patch Tuesday includes a fix for a DLL Hijacking vulnerability in the Microsoft Groove application,” said HD Moore, Rapid7’s chief security officer and Metasploit chief architect. “This was one of the hundreds of flaws discovered last year by both Rapid7 and another security firm. I am glad to see that Microsoft is making progress on these vulnerabilities and continuing to fix affected applications.”
