Patches Execute RCE Flaws
Every Patch Tuesday has the self-same theme: fighting remote code execution flaws. And that makes sense. If a hacker can access a network and run their own malicious software, they can officially call themselves a big-shot (feel free to replace the word "shot" with a more accurate term).
This month, Microsoft fixed a range of RCE problems. First, the JScript engine, which can be exploited through malicious Web pages, is repaired. So is a wireless LAN hole in Windows Server 2008 and Vista. Microsoft also offered a TCP/IP fix that can apply to certain Cisco gear, as well.
