    ·        (May 14, 2009) Microsoft has released one non security update MS08-066: This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the Microsoft Ancillary Function Driver. A local attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.


             V1.1 (January 13, 2009): Added an entry to the section, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Related to this Security Update, explaining this revision as a detection change for this security update. The corrected detection offers the security update to affected systems that previously were not offered this security update.
