7 Microsoft Security Bulletins for February 2006

Although Microsoft released seven security updates this month, organizations running Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows XP SP2, and Microsoft Office 2003 will be able to avoid loading all but one patch (MS06- 005), assuming administrators refrain from dangerous interactive activities on servers. If you're using a Web browser other than Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), be sure to read bulletin MS06-006. If you still run Office 2000, MS06-010 will be important to you, as will MS06-009 if you have Office 2003 Proofing Tools or East Asian language versions of Windows or Office on your network.
