Microsoft announced its first Patch Tuesday notification of the 2012 — In a MSRC blog post, the company announced the advance notification for the January security bulletin release, which is scheduled for Tuesday, January 10, will include “seven bulletins” “addressing eight vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Developer Tools And Software.”
The first six bulletins will address vulnerabilites associated with Windows operating systems (see Pic 1 below), and the last bulletin will Microsoft Developer Tools and Software (see Pic 2) below.
“In addition, eagle-eyed readers of the summary page will notice an unusual vulnerability classification, “Security Feature Bypass,” for one of our Important-severity bulletins. SFB-class issues in themselves can’t be leveraged by an attacker; rather, a would-be attacker would use them to facilitate use of another exploit. For those interested in learning more, we expect the SRD blog to publish a detailed analysis of the matter on Tuesday,” MSRC said.
