LANDesk Security and Patch News
- (November 06, 2013) Microsoft has released KB2896666: This KB is a Fixit solution that addresses a remote code execution vulnerability that exists in the way affected components handle specially crafted TIFF images. The following products could be vulnerable, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Lync. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to preview or open a specially crafted email message, open a specially crafted file, or browse specially crafted web content. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. The Fix it solution is not intended to be a replacement for any security update. Microsoft recommends that you always install the latest security updates. However, this Fix it solution is provided as a workaround option for some scenarios.
