On August 2nd, Microsoft released an out-of-band patch addressing a critical security flaw in the Windows shell. This flaw affects all versions of Windows and could allow remote execution of code under certain circumstances. Obviously, any critical patch released outside of Microsoft’s normal patch release schedule should be treated with a sense of urgency. We in the Support Practice Group have already taken steps to implement this patch at all of our clients and can happily report that we have not seen any issues whatsoever with the patch, so far. Additional information on the security flaw and the associated patch is available from Microsoft here.
