Microsoft Released VML Patch

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:47 pm

Microsoft has just released an update to address the VML (VGX) vulnerability. Unlike other security flaw, this time Microsoft did not wait for the scheduled patch Tuesday. Thousands of malicious web sites are taking advantage of this flaw.

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.

We recommend that customers apply the update immediately.
