    This month’s Patch Tuesday was prematurely ushered in by a spam attack purporting to carry MS Updates. Don’t be fooled, though, we have found the said spam to carry a backdoor (BKDR_HAXDOOR.MX), and has nothing to do with Microsoft’s official release.

    The October 2008 MS Patch Tuesday addresses 20 vulnerabilities, with 4 bulletins marked as critical, six marked as important, and one marked as moderate.

    More details about this batch of updates can be read at the Microsoft Security Bulletin for October 2008. The page includes an exploitability index.

    Today’s online world has become scarier. The least you can do as a matter of due diligence is to make sure your operating system and applications are all up to date. The latest patches can protect you from several vulnerabilities that malware writers can use to conduct attacks onto your PC.
