Microsoft has released their January 2011 security updates. There are only two bulletins in this release.
It is important to bear in mind what is NOT in this January 2011 release. Microsoft has elected to not provide patches for two known vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer that are being exploited in the wild right now. One is CVE-2010-3971 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/2490606.mspx) and the other is CVE-2010-3970 http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/2488013.mspx. So if your IPS vendor provides detection you might want to consider getting the associated filters in place if possible.
One more final thought: Please consider if it is safe to deploy Outlook …

Next week’s January 2011 Microsoft patches will NOT include a fix for two of the known, currently exploited vulnerabilites in Internet Explorer. One is CVE-2010-3971 and the other is described at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/2488013.mspx. So if your IPS vendor provides detection you might want to consider getting the associated filters in place if possible.
From time to time the question comes up from law enforcement and other investigators: Can Blackberry passwords be bypassed or cracked? To the best of my knowledge the answer is yes, but only by certain authorized entities. Currently the process takes about a year (backlog) and there is a cost associated with doing so.
Who is authorized? As far as I know in the United States federal level law enforcement and the intelligence services can: CIA, NSA, and the FBI. There may be elements of the the US Department of Defense and the US military, but I …

CA has confirmed that a remotely exploitable security issue exists in the Axis2 components of their ARCserve D2D product. CA ARCserve D2D r15 has been confirmed vulnerable.
Exploit code (instructions) exists for this. CA hasn’t provided a patch. The fix is to change the userName and password properties from their defaults (admin/axis2) to something secure in file “c:\program files\CA\ARCserve\D2D\TOMCAT\webapps\WebServiceImpl\WEB-INF\conf\axi22.xml”.
If you are thinking this sounds similar to the Axis2 vulnerability in SAP BusinessObjects described here, you are right – it is the same component in both products. If you have other systems that use Axis2, please review …
