MS14-028: Important

MS14-028 is for two CVEs in iSCSI that could allow denial of service. This fix has not been extended to Windows Server 2008 due to what would be considered significant re-architectural changes for that OS. Instead, Microsoft emphasizes the use of best practices as a work-around. An upgrade to Windows Server 2008 R2 or higher will also address the issue.

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.
