    ·           (July 20, 2015) Microsoft has released an update for MS15-006. This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Windows Error Reporting (WER). The vulnerability could allow security feature bypass if successfully exploited by an attacker. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain access to the memory of a running process. 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 update provides defense-in-depth measures beyond what was provided in the original update issued on January 13, 2015.
