This month’s security bulletin affects Microsoft Windows and the highest maximum severity rating for this is critical.

I can remember some severe security problems in Firefox in recent times, as well as other popular OSS like PHP. I’m no fan of Microsoft, but to say they are the only ones that need to release security updates is realy not accurate or fair. 2005-11-08 11:05 pm Ronald Vos The article doesn’t mention *what* was patched, nor wether it was an exploitable vulnerability or just erroneous code. Anyone? 2005-11-08 11:34 pm http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS05-053.mspx 2005-11-09 12:22 am Remember folks, backdoors are only classified as remote exploit bugs to be patched when they’re discovered. Enjoy your broken toys. 2005-11-09 3:29 am Maybe you guys are smoking something, as there was more than one patch… 2005-11-09 2:03 pm CPUGuy Only one for me. That and another version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool. 2005-11-09 6:07 am Tom K Why does this deserve an entire news posting? Are you *trying* to excite the Linux fanbois here or something? Pathetic. Hey, let’s announce all of the latest x.y.z.j releases of the 2.6 kernel and how how many vulnerabilities were fixed in that! Superb idea. 2005-11-09 2:50 pm Remember folks, backdoors are only classified as remote exploit bugs to be patched when they’re discovered. Enjoy your broken toys. 2005-11-09 4:37 pm Windows Updates is for updating Windows, MS Office and whatelse. They have just one patch in month for OS, Web Browser, Email client, Office Suite? That is, boys and girls, a living proof of how lazy proprietary programmers are. Developers of an opensourced software suite of such caliber would have blasted you with truckload of patches in just one week. For free. 2005-11-09 6:25 pm Night Many other patches are being made, but you’ll only get them through support for a specific issue or by waiting for the next service pack. Who wants to patch their software every week? That’s a pain in the ass, especially for an enterprise. 2005-11-09 11:09 pm suryad Only 1 patch for me and what i would like an answer to is…why is MS not releasing a truckload of patches all in one shot to get rid of all the damn known vulnerabilities?
