January 8, 2008
Microsoft released the January Security Update on January 8, 2008. Two bulletins were released that address three individual vulnerabilities. Microsoft rated one bulletin as Critical and the other as Important; both bulletins address Microsoft Windows products. The Critical vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code, but an exploit requires that an attacker can send multicast IGMPv3 or MLDv2 traffic to an affected system. Microsoft released information on two Important vulnerabilities that may allow attackers to cause a denial of service or gain elevated privileges.
