Black Tuesday – and December so far…

Well December’s not looking so bad.

Microsoft have released all their security bulletins for the month. (I hope – MS09-072 addresses last month’s out of band security advisory 977981) Out of this month’s batch, Microsoft has rated 3 as critical and 3 as important. ( 5 RCEs and 1 DoS … for those out there keeping track ) SophosLabs have given all of the bulletins a rating of medium or lower.

And for those of you with mixed environments… other notable advisories, so far this month, include:

Sun’s released an update 17 for Java SE 6 ( For OSX users, Apple has released two updates. One for OSX10.5 and one for OSX10.6 )

Research In Motion has released an advisory about new vulnerabilities in PDF Distiller for the BlackBerry.

And last but definitely not least…

Adobe has released two security advisories. One for Adobe Illustrator CS3 & CS4 and one for Adobe Flash. ( both affect all platforms )
