Microsoft Updates:Fix Nine Security Holes

Microsoft today released a set of  seven security updates to fix at least nine separate security holes in its PCs powered by its Windows operating and other software. Windows users can fetch the patches from the  Microsoft Update Web site or via Automatic Updates.
About half of the vulnerabilities fixed in this month’s Patch Tuesday were flaws in Internet Explorer. Redmond warned that one of the security holes could be used by malicious Web sites to install software on or completely compromise Windows PCs — including those running IE6 or the latest IE7 on Windows XP or Vista. Another update, which fixed a hole found in a graphics program called the “Kodak Image Viewer,” could also be exploited through IE, but applies mainly to Windows 2000 users.
Separate updates are available for Outlook Express, Windows Mail on Vista systems, and Windows Server 2003, as well as Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac.
