    Today Microsoft released the following Security Bulletins.

    Note: and are
    authoritative in all matters concerning Microsoft Security Bulletins! ANY
    e-mail, web board or newsgroup posting (including this one) should be
    verified by visiting these sites for official information. Microsoft never
    sends security or other updates as attachments. These updates must be
    downloaded from the download center or Windows Update. See the
    individual bulletins for details.

    Because some malicious messages attempt to masquerade as official Microsoft
    security notices, it is recommended that you physically type the URLs into
    your web browser and not click on the hyperlinks provided.

  2. Xposts without announcement and without followup-to are REALLY bad!

    FUp2 set!
    Visio Viewer contains GDIPLUS.DLL (I have 5.1.3100.0 from 2002-07-19
    installed here; this is older than the version included in XP SP1,
    thus vulnerable).
    Visio Viewer is NOT mentioned in the bulletin NOR the knowledge base
    articles 873373 and .
    Visio Viewer is not detected by gdidettool.exe!

    And one more: a slipstreamed Windows XP with SP2 contains a GDIPLUS.DLL
    5.1.3097.0 in \I386\ASMS\1000\MSFT\WINDOWS\GDIPLUS\

    Microsoft, get your homework done!
