Out-of-band Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification for July 2009

Published: July 24, 2009

Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification issued: July 24, 2009
Microsoft Security Bulletins to be issued: July 28, 2009

This is an advance notification of two out-of-band security bulletins that Microsoft is intending to release on July 28, 2009. One bulletin will be for the Microsoft Visual Studio product line; application developers should be aware of updates available affecting certain types of applications. The second bulletin contains defense-in-depth changes to Internet Explorer to address attack vectors related to the Visual Studio bulletin, as well as fixes for unrelated vulnerabilities that are rated Critical. Customers who are up to date on their security updates are protected from known attacks related to this out-of-band release.

This bulletin advance notification will be replaced with an update to the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for July 2009 on July 28, 2009. For more information about the bulletin advance notification service, see Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification.

While this release is to address a single, overall issue, in order to provide the broadest protections possible to customers, we’ll be releasing two separate security bulletins as mentioned already before:

1. One Security Bulletin for Visual Studio

2. One Security Bulletin for Internet Explorer

While we can’t go into specifics about the issue prior to release, we can say that the Visual Studio bulletin will address an issue that can affect certain types of applications. The Internet Explorer bulletin will provide defense-in-depth changes to Internet Explorer to help provide additional protections for the issues addressed by the Visual Studio bulletin. The Internet Explorer update will also address vulnerabilities rated as Critical that are unrelated to the Visual Studio bulletin that were privately and responsibly reported.

Customers who are up to date on their security updates are protected from known attacks related to this Out of Band release.

A reminder that this information is subject to change and that when we do release the security bulletins, we’ll let you know through the MSRC weblog.
