Application Compatibility Update with Quest®Workspace™ ChangeBASE

Executive Summary

 

 

With this considerable February Microsoft Patch Tuesday update, we see a set of 12 updates; 5 of which are marked as “Critical” and 7 rated as “Important”.

 

The Patch Tuesday Security Update analysis was performed by the Quest ChangeBASE Patch Impact team and identified a small percentage of applications from the thousands of applications included in testing for this release which showed amber issues.

 

Of the twelve patches, 7 "require a restart to load correctly",  5 "may require a restart", so, as usual, it is probably best to assume all require a restart to be installed correctly.

Security Update Detailed Summary

 

MS13-009

Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (2792100)

Description

This security update resolves thirteen privately reported vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. 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.

MS13-010

Vulnerability in Vector Markup Language Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2797052)

Description

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the Microsoft implementation of Vector Markup Language (VML). The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user viewed a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer.

MS13-011

Vulnerability in Media Decompression Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2780091)

Description

This security update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted media file (such as an .mpg file), opens a Microsoft Office document (such as a .ppt file) that contains a specially crafted embedded media file, or receives specially crafted streaming content. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. 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.
