View Microsoft related news. Severity Rating: Important
Revision Note: V4.2 (January 24, 2012): Added an entry to the update FAQ to announce a detection change for KB2538242, KB2538243, KB2467173, KB2538218, KB2538241, and KB2542054 to correct an installation issue. This is a detection change only. There were no changes to the security update files. Customers who have already successfully updated their systems do not need to take any action.
Summary: This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in certain applications built using the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a legitimate file associated with such an affected application, and the file is located in the same network folder as a specially crafted library file. For an attack to be successful, a user must visit an untrusted remote file system location or WebDAV share and open a document from this location that is then loaded by the affected application.
