Microsoft Patches for August

Today, Microsoft released their security bulletins for August. Six updates (Windows Update returned eight updates for my machine; which was 100% current as of the last patch cycle).

Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for August 2005

Some more information on the patches and some guidance from Marc Maiffret on the possible ease of developing exploits for these vulnerabilities,

The two most critical patches to install ASAP are MS05-039 and MS05-043...

This is a very easy to exploit vulnerability. The time to
reverse engineer this patch and find the vulnerability to exploit should only be a few hours (it took us an hour, as we didn't report the bug).
