Microsoft to patch zero day DNS flaw


Microsoft on Tuesday plans to release seven security bulletins, including a fix for a zero day flaw in Windows that is already being used in cyberattacks.

The bulletins, part of Microsoft's monthly patch cycle, are slated to provide fixes for an undisclosed number of security vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, Exchange and BizTalk, Microsoft said on its Web site Thursday. The issue affecting BizTalk also relates to "Capicom," a developer component to add cryptography to applications.

Each of the four product families is scheduled to get at least one "critical" update, Microsoft's highest severity rating, the company said. Microsoft plans to release two bulletins related to issues in Windows and three related to Office, with one remaining for both Exchange and BizTalk, it said.
