Microsoft issues 3 critical security bulletins

Wednesday, 10 August 2005, 7:29 AM EST

Microsoft on Tuesday issued six security bulletins for Windows, half of them carrying critical vulnerabilities, with the majority of the bugs able to be exploited remotely.

"It's an interesting reversal of the trend," said Mike Murray the director of research at vulnerability management vendor nCircle. "Last month I said it had been a while since we've seen server side, remotely-exploitable vulnerabilities, and now this month five out of the six [bulletins] don't require any user interaction [to be exploited]."
