For details on affected software, see the next section, Affected Software and Download Locations.

Bulletin IDBulletin Title and Executive SummaryMaximum Severity Rating and Vulnerability ImpactRestart RequirementAffected Software
MS09-018 Vulnerabilities in Active Directory Could Allow Remote Code Execution (971055)

This security update resolves two privately reported vulnerabilities in implementations of Active Directory on Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003, and Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) when installed on Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003. The more severe vulnerability could allow remote code execution. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system remotely. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Firewall best practices and standard default firewall configurations can help protect networks from attacks that originate outside the enterprise perimeter. Best practices recommend that systems that are connected to the Internet have a minimal number of ports exposed.

May require restartMicrosoft Office
MS09-026 Vulnerability in RPC Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (970238)

This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in the Windows remote procedure call (RPC) facility where the RPC Marshalling Engine does not update its internal state appropriately. The vulnerability could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and take complete control of an affected system. Supported editions of Microsoft Windows are not delivered with any RPC servers or clients that are subject to exploitation of this vulnerability. In a default configuration, users could not be attacked by exploitation of this vulnerability. However, the vulnerability is present in the Microsoft Windows RPC runtime and could affect third-party RPC applications.
Important
Elevation of Privilege
Requires restartMicrosoft Windows
MS09-025 Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (968537)

This security update resolves two publicly disclosed and two privately reported vulnerabilities in the Windows kernel that could allow elevation of privilege. An attacker who successfully exploited any of these vulnerabilities could execute arbitrary code and take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. An attacker must have valid logon credentials and be able to log on locally to exploit these vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities could not be exploited remotely or by anonymous users.
Important
Elevation of Privilege
Requires restartMicrosoft Windows
MS09-020 Vulnerabilities in Internet Information Services (IIS) Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (970483)

This security update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability and one privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). The vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker sent a specially crafted HTTP request to a Web site that requires authentication. These vulnerabilities allow an attacker to bypass the IIS configuration that specifies which type of authentication is allowed, but not the file system-based access control list (ACL) check that verifies whether a file is accessible by a given user. Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities would still restrict the attacker to the permissions granted to the anonymous user account by the file system ACLs.
Important
Elevation of Privilege
Requires restartMicrosoft Windows
MS09-023 Vulnerability in Windows Search Could Allow Information Disclosure (963093)

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Windows Search. The vulnerability could allow information disclosure if a user performs a search that returns a specially crafted file as the first result or if the user previews a specially crafted file from the search results. By default, the Windows Search component is not preinstalled on Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. It is an optional component available for download. Windows Search installed on supported editions of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 is not affected by this vulnerability.
Moderate

Bulletin IDBulletin TitleCVE IDExploitability Index AssessmentKey Notes
MS09-018 Vulnerabilities in Active Directory Could Allow Remote Code Execution (971055) CVE-2009-1138 3 - Functioning exploit code unlikelyConsistent exploit code is likely that can cause a denial of service condition on Windows 2000 servers that expose the LDAP or LDAPS service on the network. However, due to additional checks on the heap, a functioning remote code execution exploit is very unlikely.
MS09-018 Vulnerabilities in Active Directory Could Allow Remote Code Execution (971055) CVE-2009-1139 3 - Functioning exploit code unlikelyThe security effect of this vulnerability is a memory leak that can eventually lead to denial of service. Code execution is not possible.
MS09-019 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (969897) CVE-2007-3091 3 - Functioning exploit code unlikely(None)
MS09-019 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (969897) CVE-2009-1140 3 - Functioning exploit code unlikelyThis is a cross-domain information access vulnerability that most likely results in information disclosure, not code execution.
MS09-019 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (969897) CVE-2009-1141 1 - Consistent exploit code likely(None)
MS09-019 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (969897) CVE-2009-1528 3 - Functioning exploit code unlikely(None)
MS09-019 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (969897) CVE-2009-1529 2 - Inconsistent exploit code likely(None)

Detection and Deployment Guidance

Microsoft has provided detection and deployment guidance for this month’s security updates. This guidance will also help IT professionals understand how they can use various tools to help deploy the security update, such as Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Office Update, the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), the Office Detection Tool, Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), and the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool (ESUIT). For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 910723.

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

The Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) allows administrators to scan local and remote systems for missing security updates as well as common security misconfigurations. For more information about MBSA, visit Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

Windows Server Update Services

By using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), administrators can quickly and reliably deploy the latest critical updates and security updates for Windows 2000 operating systems and later, Office XP and later, Exchange Server 2003, and SQL Server 2000 to Windows 2000 and later operating systems.

For more information about how to deploy this security update using Windows Server Update Services, visit Windows Server Update Services.

Systems Management Server

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) delivers a highly-configurable enterprise solution for managing updates. By using SMS, administrators can identify Windows-based systems that require security updates and to perform controlled deployment of these updates throughout the enterprise with minimal disruption to end users. The next release of SMS, System Center Configuration Manager 2007, is now available; see also System Center Configuration Manager 2007. For more information about how administrators can use SMS 2003 to deploy security updates, see SMS 2003 Security Patch Management. SMS 2.0 users can also use the Software Updates Services Feature Pack to help deploy security updates. For information about SMS, visit Microsoft Systems Management Server.

Note SMS uses the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Microsoft Office Detection Tool to provide broad support for security bulletin update detection and deployment. Some software updates may not be detected by these tools. Administrators can use the inventory capabilities of the SMS in these cases to target updates to specific systems. For more information about this procedure, see Deploying Software Updates Using the SMS Software Distribution Feature. Some security updates require administrative rights following a restart of the system. Administrators can use the Elevated Rights Deployment Tool (available in the SMS 2003 Administration Feature Pack and in the SMS 2.0 Administration Feature Pack) to install these updates.

Update Compatibility Evaluator and Application Compatibility Toolkit

Updates often write to the same files and registry settings required for your applications to run. This can trigger incompatibilities and increase the time it takes to deploy security updates. You can streamline testing and validating Windows updates against installed applications with the Update Compatibility Evaluator components included with Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0.

The Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) contains the necessary tools and documentation to evaluate and mitigate application compatibility issues before deploying Microsoft Windows Vista, a Windows Update, a Microsoft Security Update, or a new version of Windows Internet Explorer in your environment.
