Microsoft’s First Monthly Update for 2009 Fixes Windows Vulnerabilities

Software giant Microsoft, in its first monthly security bulletin for 2009, released just a single update on January 13, patching vulnerabilities in its Windows operating systems. Effective exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to run arbitrary code on a target computer, enabling him to penetrate the PC, install data-capturing malware or create a denial-of-service (DoS) condition.

The new update handles three vulnerabilities discovered in the Microsoft SMB (Server Message Block) Protocol, a Windows tool used for accessing printers, files or other communications on a shared network. The flaw impacts all Windows versions, including Windows 2000, Server 2003, XP, Server 2008 and Vista.
