Microsoft plans just two patches next week

They may include a fix for URI protocol handler vulnerability, or the Macrovision DRM bug, says researcher

November 08, 2007 (Computerworld) -- Microsoft Corp. today scheduled just two security updates for Tuesday to fix flaws in Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003. One of the two is a leftover from October that was bumped at the last minute.

Only one of the bulletins will be rated "critical," Microsoft's highest ranking, while the other will be labeled "important," the next-lower rating. As usual, Microsoft disclosed a limited amount of information about the upcoming updates in a prepatch notification posted to the company's Web site today.

The critical update affects Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, said Microsoft, which classified the vulnerability as a remote code execution bug. What the bulletin will fix, however, is up for speculation.

"It could be the Macrovision vulnerability," said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Inc., referring to the digital rights management software bundled with Windows that has already been targeted by in-the-wild attacks. "Macrovision has already got a fix, so Microsoft wouldn't have had to do any coding."

Storms noted, however, that Microsoft would have to stretch its usual definition of "remote code execution" to make the Macrovision vulnerability fit the update, since both companies have been calling it a privilege elevation flaw, and thus less serious. "Microsoft sometimes seems to go back and forth about privilege elevation," Storms said. "They might just say, 'sure it's an elevation, but it could also lead to remote code execution.' Or we may just see a reversal here of the bug's severity."
