    Targeted, but limited, attacks on text docs




    PATCH WATCH


    Targeted, but limited, attacks on text docs


    By Susan Bradley

    Microsoft's most critical patch this month is one I recommend holding back on.

    I trust that savvy Windows Secrets readers running custom line-of-business applications won't open unknown Word documents.

    The full text of this column is posted at http://windowssecrets.com/patch-watc...-on-text-docs/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Unable to Print TurboTax Return After Installing the Latest Windows
    Update (Last Updated 12 Apr-12)
    http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/i.../SLN61229.html

    It's either KB 2656368 (.net 4) or it could be 2656369 (.net 2).
    Hang loose.

    From Microsoft

    'It seems the .Net Framework team has what they need and are tracking down the problem. It's unclear how widespread this issue may be. So as a precaution, the .Net updates have been down-throttled (they will not be checked or install by default on consumer PCs). Throttling has no effect in the managed space, so administrators will need to weigh the potential risks to 'forms' (tax and bank form printing) software to make a decision for their environments.

    I'm not able to speak for the product group (.Net Framework) who is working diligently to track this down. But once they have a solution in hand, it's likely they'll update KB2656368 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2656368) and the MS12-025 bulletin (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s...letin/ms12-025) with details.

    I hope that helps until there's official word and a resolution.'

    My MS Updates is offerring me Microsoft Office 2003 Compatibility Pack SP 3. It showed up a day or two after the April 10th regular updates. It's ID/KB 2526297, issued Nov. 30, 2011. I assume it was offerred because I installed the Office 2003 Compatibility Pack some time ago, and perhaps was triggered when I installed one of the Office 2007 nonsecurity updates -- or maybe because I didn't. Anyway, I downloaded and installed it -- and it shows up as a MS install in my System Restore -- but its still in my Updates. Any thoughts? Thanks.
