Microsoft Issues One Critical Fix For Patch Tuesday [crn.com]

Microsoft issued just one update for its January security bulletin release Tuesday, fixing Windows glitches that could allow hackers to launch malicious code or a denial-of-service attack on users' computers.

Specifically, the critical security update -- the only one issued for Microsoft's regularly scheduled "Patch Tuesday" release -- addresses three vulnerabilities found in the Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol, which allows file information to be sent to printers and domain controllers. The error affects all versions of Windows, including Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2003 and Server 2008.
