Microsoft Security Bulletins to be issued: July 28, 2009

This is an advance notification of two out-of-band security bulletins that Microsoft is intending to release on July 28, 2009. One bulletin will be for the Microsoft Visual Studio product line; application developers should be aware of updates available affecting certain types of applications. The second bulletin contains defense-in-depth changes to Internet Explorer to address attack vectors related to the Visual Studio bulletin, as well as fixes for unrelated vulnerabilities that are rated Critical. Customers who are up to date on their security updates are protected from known attacks related to this out-of-band release.

This bulletin advance notification will be replaced with an update to the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for July 2009 on July 28, 2009. For more information about the bulletin advance notification service, see Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification.

Obviously Internet Explorer is only the attack target but the source comes from the used development platform. I'm sure that we will see more patches and updates the next couple of weeks coming from major software vendors who have either used the same development platform or the same libraries to compile their software code.
