MS014-26 & MS14-027: Important

MS14-026 is an elevation of privilege issue in Windows and the .NET framework. One CVE is found in this one and it is specific to .NET reporting. MS14-027 is a vulnerability in Windows Shell Handler that could allow an elevation of privilege. This important-rated bulletin covers one CVE that is under active attack.

Microsoft released eight bulletins this month – more than we’ve seen in the last few Patch Tuesdays, and the impact spans numerous software categories. The May patch load includes eight bulletins, two of which are rated critical, for a total of 13 CVEs. The busy Patch Tuesday comes on the heels of the out-of-band patch for IE, MS14-021, released by Microsoft May 1.

In this slideshow, Russ Ernst, director of product development at Lumension, takes a closer look at the patches for May and the systems they affect.
