Bug-Ridden Internet Explorer Back with a Bang … and 41 Flaws

This month’s Patch Tuesday round from Microsoft features nine bulletins fixing 56 vulnerabilities including a mammoth 41 flaws in Internet Explorer.

The nine patches this month include four remote code execution flaws, two security feature bypasses, one escalation of privilege and one information disclosure vulnerability.

Six are rated ‘important’ by Redmond and three are ‘critical’, including MS15-009, which fixes one publicly reported and 40 privately reported flaws in Internet Explorer.

After unusually receiving no patches last month, the bug-ridden browser is back with a bang in February, with all versions affected.

“While one of the vulnerabilities is being used in the wild, it is not of the RCE type, but ‘only’ an Information Disclosure that attackers are using in conjunction with other vulnerabilities to gain control over the targeted machines,” explained Qualys CTO Wolfgang Kandek in a blog post.

However, the patch did not fix a universal cross-site scripting vulnerability discovered earlier this month by Deusen which could allow attackers to steal user credentials.

Next up is patch MS15-010, which is designed to fix one publicly disclosed and five privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, including a RCE flaw which could be exploited if an attacker convinces a user to visit a specially crafted doc or web page that contains embedded TrueType fonts.
