July 2009 Microsoft Critical Updates

Q: July 2009 Microsoft Critical Updates

Hi. Could one of you experienced techies please let me know which of the High Priority Microsoft updates I should install? I have been burned before by just downloading these updates without checking them out. So these updates would inclue
Cumlative Update for IE 7
Update to Frame 3.5
Internet Explorer 8 (I am really dubious about this one)
Update for Microsoft Silver light what ever in the heck that is and
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

Also is the microsoft malicicous software removal tool a good thing and if so I read some where that it should be updated every Tuesday. Do you recommend this?

As always I appreciate your help. Maggie

Preferred Solution: July 2009 Microsoft Critical Updates

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Maggie:

Install the cumulative update for IE7 and the update for Microsoft NET Framework 3.5.

You don't need to install IE8, unless you want to upgrade from IE7.

You apparently already have Microsoft Silverlight installed, which is why an update for it is posted. Uninstall it in Add Or Remove Programs. You don't need it, and it's known to be problematic and to conflict with Adobe Flash Player.

I don't know why you're being prompted to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. It may be needed because of some program you have installed.

The Malicious Software Removal Tool is released every month. Go ahead and download it and let it run.

I then have to go through start up repair etc before eventually having to do a system restore. I don't want to do a complete wipe of the system. Is there any solution to this problem ? It started after I installed a new printer driver, but surely that's not a problem is it ? Any help would be much appreciated !!

I run Windows XP Pro SP2 and have the original OEM installation CD. If I run a Repair from the CD, I understand that it will trash all of the 40+ updates since a year ago that have been applied, but retain the user data, like in Program Files and Application Data paths. Let me know if this is not true!

Is there a tool or procedure which can be used to capture all of the Microsoft critical security updates and stream them to CD-RW discs, for example Auto Streamer?

What is the procedure for capturing all of the critical security Microsoft updates - or let's just say all of the Microsoft updates that have been applied since my OS was originally built and installed? Specifically, what is the staging and detail needed to accomplish this task?

I would like to run the Repair on the OS, followed by a CD installation of all of the Microsoft updates that have been applied since my system was first built from scratch without trashing the user data.

What are the gotchas in doing this that can be anticipated, if any to avoid? Or, can this not be done?

Update on Windows 7 RTM

I?d like to offer up a little insight into the ?Release to Manufacturing? (RTM) for Windows 7.

Over the past week, there have been many rumors surrounding RTM.

We are close, but have not yet signed off on Windows 7. When we RTM you will most certainly hear it here. As we?ve said all along, we will RTM Windows 7 when it?s ready. As previously stated, we expect Windows 7 to RTM in the 2nd half of July.

Windows 7 will be available in many languages from around the world. For us to consider RTM ?done?, it requires that all languages be completely finished. So there is a lot of work that needs to take place for us to finalize all languages of Windows 7. We also need to get to a point of ?global readiness? with our partners. Our partners being ready for Windows 7 is extremely important to RTM. As Steven Sinofsky mentions in this blog post in May, RTM isn?t a single point in time. It?s the beginning of the next ?process? for Windows 7. At RTM our partners begin their final preparations for Windows 7, including testing and building images for new PCs. RTM is essentially the final ?stage? of engineering for Windows 7 before it hits the market at General Availability (GA). As Steven notes, engineering continues on Windows 7 from RTM until GA on October 22nd.

Another thing to keep in mind is that when we do a specific build internally of Windows 7... Read more

Speculation on the deadline at which Microsoft will release Windows 7 to manufacturing not only abounds but also continues. It all started early in June 2009, when Microsoft revealed that it planned to launch the next iteration of the Windows client to the public on October 22. At that time, Brandon LeBlanc, Windows communications manager on the Windows Client Communications Team, stated that ?Release To Manufacturing (RTM) is an important milestone on the path to GA. We anticipate that we?ll be able to make the RTM code for Windows 7 available to our partners sometime in the 2nd half of July. We also expect to be able to make RTM code for Windows Server 2008 R2 available to our partners in this time frame as well.? Now the Redmond company is saying that Windows 7 RTM will be closer to the end of July.

When I try to get onto the internet or when I'm already ON the internet my computer not only runs slow, but freezes up. I have 4 programs that I have to "close" when I turn off the computer. 3 of them I have determined are OK (thru my own research on Google & other sites), but annoying & part of HP or Norton. The 4th 1, sunkist.notifyicondata.hwnd is the 1 I think is the culprit of my slow and/or frozen computer. Searching on Google, I saw some olds posts on some "tech sites" about this, but posts from 2007/2006 is a while ago, and I'd prefer to know if there is a "new fix." I know Word and other software of the like, but I don't know much about the computer itself (yes, I should take a class) and I do not know what "malware" is - but read more than 1 post with the word in it.

Ive looked over the posts in this forums and can see that you guys are swamped, so really dont expect much feedback on this, but ill post anyway because i feel its required to do so to fulfill requirements given by Blizzard Corp.

I have a Acer Travelmate 6460 Laptop, Windows XP Service pack 3, Centrino Duo chips, and 2 gb RAM.

Last saturday morning i tried to log on to my gameaccount and found that i wasnt able to do so, because my password had changed. I managed to create a trial account and thus log on the game and could then see that one of my chars was online. Later on, one of my ingame friends could confirm that the char had been continously online for at least 48 hours.

I managed finally to get in contact with a Blizz employee and he / she adviced me to follow the steps given in a Blizz forum thread:

4. Scan with MBAM
5. Complete virusscan (i use latest edition AVG)
6. Create Log with Hijackthis software.

You do NOT need KB2871997 - it's a tweak to reduce the attack surface, and not an update, as such.

I don't have that detection tool either. At least some of the office updates are available through the windows update feature.

In fact, I generally download only 1 or 2 updates at a time as I am on dial-up.

The Internet Storm Center has an excellent description of the protection offered with each of the updates (it's the 1st site I check each morning). While an individual security update may be rated as Important, Moderate, or Critical, every security patch should be considered “critical” for protecting your system. An Important or Moderate rating just means that an vulnerable security hole may require significant user action or may be very complex for malicious individuals to develop. July 2004 - Windows Update (Summary of the Risks Coveredhttp://www.incidents.org/diary.php?date=2004-07-13 As expected, Microsoft issued its monthly security bulletin today. There are several patches designated as "critical" and "important."

What is preventing MS monthly patches (updates) from downloading? It is Saturday and since Wednesday, my system has been trying to download these updates and using ±50% CPU of a svchost.exe (stsyem) file. I've been looking for a solution and wanted to get another opinion if this would work without compromising my system:
 
change download setting to "Never check for updates"
reboot
download and install June 2016 rollup for Windows 7 SP1 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/3161608)
reboot
change download setting to "Install updates"

If you're using Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit and have it configured with the POSReady registry tweak so it can continue to receive security updates through April 2019, a total of 8 security updates for July 2018 are available at the Microsoft Update Catalog site.



Download and save all 8 security updates, then install them in order by KB number.

Do NOT restart your computer until all 8 security updates have been installed.

The Internet Mail Connector (IMC) enables Microsoft Exchange Server
to communicate with other mail servers via SMTP. When the IMC
receives an SMTP extended Hello (EHLO) protocol command from a
connecting SMTP server, it responds by sending a status reply that
starts with the following:
250-<Exchange server ID>Hello<Connecting server ID>

Where:
<Exchange server ID> is the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of
the Exchange server <Connecting server ID> is either the FQDN or
the IP address of the server that initiated the connection.

The FQDN would be used if the Exchange5.5 IMC is able to resolve
this information through a reverse DNS lookup; the IP address
would be used if a reverse DNS lookup was not possible or failed
to resolve the connecting servers IP address.

A security vulnerability results because of an unchecked buffer
In the IMC code that generates the response to the EHLO protocol
command. If the total length of the message exceeds a particular
value, the data would overrun the buffer. If the buffer were
overrun with random data, it would result in the failure of the
IMC. If, however, the buffer were overrun with carefully chosen
data, it could be possible for the attacker to run code in the
security context of the IMC, which runs as Exchange5.5 Service
Account.

It is important to note that the attacker could not simply send
Data to the IMC in order to overrun the buffer. Instead, the
Attacker would need to create a set of condi... Read more

This is a cumulative patch that includes the functionality of all
previously released patches for SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, MSDE
1.0, and MSDE 2000. In addition, it eliminates three newly discovered
vulnerabilities.

- Named Pipe Hijacking -
Upon system startup, SQL Server creates and listens on a specific
named pipe for incoming connections to the server. A named pipe is a
specifically named one-way or two-way channel for communication
between a pipe server and one or more pipe clients. The named pipe is
checked for verification of which connection attempts can log on to
the system running SQL Server to execute queries against data that is
stored on the server.

A flaw exists in the checking method for the named pipe that could
allow an attacker local to the system running SQL Server to hijack
(gain control of) the named pipe during another client's
authenticated logon password. This would allow the attacker to gain
control of the named pipe at the same permission level as the user
who is attempting to connect. If the user who is attempting to
connect remotely has a higher level of permissions than the attacker,
the attacker will assume those rights when the named pipe is
compromised.

- Named Pipe Denial of Service -
In the same named pipes scenario that is mentioned in the "Named Pipe
Hijacking" section of this bulletin, it is possible for an
unauthenticated user who is local to the intranet to send a very
large packet to a specific named pip... Read more

Not sure if this is the correct forum. If not, please move. Thanks

Microsoft Metadirectory Services (MMS) is a centralized metadirectory
service that provides connectivity, management, and interoperability
functions to help unify fragmented directory and database
environments. It enables enterprises to link together disparate data
repositories such as Exchange directory, Active Directory,
third-party directory services, and proprietary databases, for the
purpose of ensuring that the data in each is consistent, accurate,
and can be centrally managed.

A flaw exists that could enable an unprivileged user to access and
manipulate data within MMS that should, by design, only be
accessible to MMS administrators. Specifically, it is possible for
an unprivileged user to connect to the MMS data repository via an
LDAP client in such a way as to bypass certain security checks.
This could enable an attacker to modify data within the MMS data
repository, either for the purpose of changing the MMS
configuration or replicating bogus data to the other data
repositories.

Maximum Severity Rating: Moderate

Affected Software:

Microsoft Metadirectory Services 2.2
