>
> (1) CRITICAL: Microsoft Windows WebDAV Mini-Redirector Heap
> Overflow (MS08-007)
> Affected:
> Microsoft Windows XP
> Microsoft Windows Server 2003
> Microsoft Windows Vista
>
> Description: Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning, known
> as WebDAV,
> is a protocol allowing filesystem-like access to resources
> exported via
> HTTP. The WebDAV mini-redirector is a kernel-level resource
> in Microsoft
> Windows that allows systems to transparently access WebDAV resources.
> The WebDAV mini-redirector contains a heap-based buffer
> overflow in its
> handling of WebDAV traffic. A malicious WebDAV server could
> exploit this
> vulnerability, allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary code with
> SYSTEM privileges. Note that WebDAV resources can be accessed by
> clicking links on web pages or email messages. Technical details are
> publicly available for this vulnerability.
>
> Status: Microsoft confirmed, updates available.

> (3) CRITICAL: Apple QuickTime ActiveX Control Multiple Vulnerabilities
> Affected:
> Apple QuickTime ActiveX Control versions prior to 7.4.1
>
> Description: Apple QuickTime is Apple's streaming media framework,
> available for both Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft WIndows. On Microsoft
> Windows, some functionality is provided by an ActiveX control. This
> ActiveX control contains multiple vulnerabilities in its handling of
> parameters passed to various methods. A malicious web page that
> instantiates this control could exploit one of these
> vulnerabilities to
> execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user. Full
> technical details and a proof-of-concept are publicly available for
> these vulnerabilities. Note that the affected control is
> installed along
> with Apple iTunes and Apple Safari.
>
> Status: Apple has not confirmed, no updates available. Users can
> mitigate the impact of this vulnerability by disabling the affected
> control via Microsoft's "kill bit" mechanism using CLSID
> "02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B". Note that this may
> affect normal
> application functionality.

> (6) CRITICAL: Adobe Reader Multiple Vulnerabilities
> Affected:
> Adobe Reader versions prior to 8.1.2
>
> Description: Adobe Reader is Adobe's reader for the Portable Document
> Format (PDF). Reader contains multiple vulnerabilities in its handling
> of JavaScript embedded in PDF documents. A specially crafted PDF
> containing calls to certain JavaScript functions could exploit these
> vulnerabilities, allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary
> code with the
> privileges of the current user. Note that PDF documents are generally
> viewed upon receipt, and without further user action. Several
> proofs-of-concept are publicly available for these
> vulnerabilities, and
> these vulnerabilities are being actively exploited in the wild.
>
> Status: Adobe confirmed, updates available.

> (8) CRITICAL: ClamAV Multiple Vulnerabilities
> Affected:
> ClamAV versions prior to 0.92.1
>
> Description: ClamAV is a popular open source antivirus system. It
> contains multiple vulnerabilities in its parsing of executables. A
> specially crafted Portable Executable (PE) file or executable file
> compressed with the MEW application could trigger a memory corruption
> vulnerability. Successfully exploiting these vulnerabilities
> would allow
> an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
> vulnerable process. Note that, on systems using ClamAV to scan email,
> it is sufficient for exploitation to have an email transit the system;
> no user interaction is necessary. Technical details for these
> vulnerabilities are available via source code analysis.
>
> Status: ClamAV confirmed, updates available.

> page. Note that
> ASP.NET is not affected by this vulnerability, and the vulnerable
> versions of the software are not installed by default on
> recent versions
> of Microsoft Windows. Note that a proof-of-concept for this
> vulnerability is available to members of Immunity Security's Partners'
