MS14-034: Important

A vulnerability causing a remote code execution in Microsoft Word is addressed in MS14-034. It impacts Office 2007 and higher. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a specially crafted file is opened in an affected version of Microsoft Word. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.

Of the seven bulletins released for June Patch Tuesday, two are rated critical and five are rated important. All together, they cover a total of 66 CVEs, but one, MS14-035, remediates 59 of those CVEs. Yes, it’s time for another IE cumulative update and this should (again) be first on your list of patching priorities for June from Microsoft. Russ Ernst, director, product management at Lumension, provides a rundown on the patches for this month.
