Another MS update that may have escaped notice

Those of you running automatic updates may have noticed more updates being downloaded this week than what we mentioned in our Black Tuesday overview.  Among the additional updates was the one descirbed in this advisory which had to do with killbits for 3rd party ActiveX components.  The following comment from the overview sums it up nicely, so I'll repeat it here (thanx, anonymous):

Microsoft also released 953839, which is an updated variant of MS08-032 (950760). This is the ActiveX Killbits update. This release only adds 3rd-party killbits to the list, so they didn't give it a bulletin. But you still want to deploy it . . .

I will be teaching next: Malware Reverse-Engineering Challenge - SANS San Antonio 2020
