Please note: Monthly critical updates, including security updates, are now distributed and available in DVD5 format from your MS Distributor. This change will reduce the number of files to download and manage when using electronic download via the ECE. In addition, the structure of the media itself will now be organized by Knowledge Base (KB) article folders, versus operating system folders as per previous monthly critical update packages.
|This Update is rated as Critical:
The severity rating system provides a single rating for each vulnerability. The definitions of the ratings are in the table below. For more information regarding the severity system, please visit the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) website.
|Critical||A vulnerability whose exploitation could allow the propagation of an Internet worm without user action.|
|Important||A vulnerability whose exploitation could result in compromise of the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of users data, or of the integrity or availability of processing resources.|
|Moderate||Exploitability is mitigated to a significant degree by factors such as default configuration, auditing, or difficulty of exploitation.|
|Low||A vulnerability whose exploitation is extremely difficult, or whose impact is minimal.|
