Deployment

Software Update Services:

By using Microsoft Software Update Services (SUS), administrators can quickly and reliably deploy the latest critical updates and security updates to Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003-based servers, and to desktop systems that are running Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional.

For more information about how to deploy this security update with Software Update Services, visit the Software Update Services Web site.

Windows Server Update Services:

By using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), administrators can quickly and reliably deploy the latest critical updates and security updates for Windows 2000 operating systems and later, Office XP and later, Exchange Server 2003, and SQL Server 2000 to Windows 2000 and later operating systems.

For more information about how to deploy this security update using Windows Server Update Services, visit the Windows Server Update Services Web site.

Systems Management Server:

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) delivers a highly-configurable enterprise solution for managing updates. By using SMS, administrators can identify Windows-based systems that require security updates and to perform controlled deployment of these updates throughout the enterprise with minimal disruption to end users. For more information about how administrators can use SMS 2003 to deploy security updates, see the SMS 2003 Security Patch Management Web site. SMS 2.0 users can also use Software Updates Service Feature Pack to help deploy security updates. For information about SMS, visit the SMS Web site.

Note SMS uses the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Microsoft Office Detection Tool to provide broad support for security bulletin update detection and deployment. Some software updates may not be detected by these tools. Administrators can use the inventory capabilities of the SMS in these cases to target updates to specific systems. For more information about this procedure, see the following Web site. Some security updates require administrative rights following a restart of the system. Administrators can use the Elevated Rights Deployment Tool (available in the SMS 2003 Administration Feature Pack and in the SMS 2.0 Administration Feature Pack) to install these updates.

QChain.exe and Update.exe:

Microsoft has released a command-line tool named QChain.exe that gives system administrators the ability to safely chain security updates together. Chaining is when you install multiple updates without restarting between each install. Update.exe, used in the updates that are described in this advisory, has chaining functionality built in. Customers who use Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 or later, who use Windows XP, or who use Windows Server 2003, do not require Qchain.exe to chain these updates. Qchain.exe still supports chaining these Windows Updates so that an administrator can create a consistent deployment script across all platforms. For more information about Qchain, visit this Web site.

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer:

The Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) allows administrators to scan local and remote systems for missing security updates as well as common security misconfigurations. For more information about MBSA visit Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer Web site.

Detection and Deployment Guidance:

Microsoft has provided detection and deployment guidance for this month’s security updates. This guidance will also help IT professionals understand how they can use various tools to help deploy the security update, such as Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Office Update, the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), the Office Detection Tool, Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool, and the Enterprise Update Scan Tool (EST). For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 910723.

October 2007 Microsoft Security Bulletin Release

Microsoft has released the following six security bulletins, having withdrawn one bulletin from release:

  • MS07-055 addresses a vulnerability in Kodak Image Viewer, and is rated as a Critical bulletin.
  • MS07-056 addresses a vulnerability Outlook Express and Windows Mail, and is rated as a Critical bulletin for earlier versions of Windows and as an Important bulletin for Windows Vista.
  • MS07-057 is a Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer, and is rated as a Critical bulletin.
  • MS07-058 addresses a vulnerability in RPC, and is rated as an Important bulletin.
  • MS07-059 addresses a vulnerability in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Office SharePoint Server 2007, and is rated as an Important bulletin.
  • MS07-060 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Word, and is rated as a Critical bulletin for earlier versions and as an Important bulletin for more recent versions.
In addition to the bulletins mentioned above, Microsoft also re-released bulletin MS05-004. This re-release updates detection includes Server 2003 Service Pack 2 and Vista as affected platforms. There were no changes to the update binaries, so if you have already successfully installed this update, you do not need to reinstall it. Customers who have applied MS07-040 are unaffected by this detection update, as their systems are up-to-date from a .NET Framework security stance. Please refer to the bulletin revision history for more information.

Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for December 2007

Executive Summaries

The security bulletins for this month are as follows, in order of severity:

Critical (3)

  • Bulletin Identifier Microsoft Security Bulletin MS07-064

    Bulletin Title

    Vulnerabilities in DirectX Could Allow Remote Code Execution (941568)

    Executive Summary

    This critical security update resolves two privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft DirectX. These vulnerabilities could allow code execution if a user opened a specially crafted file used for streaming media in DirectX. If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. 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.

    Maximum Severity Rating

    Critical

    Impact of Vulnerability

    Remote Code Execution

    Detection

    Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer can detect whether your computer system requires this update. The update will not require a restart, except in certain situations.
