A word of warning!!  it is a 44Meg zipped download with a .xps file inside….   so you need to run and install WinFX XML Paper Specifications Document (BETA) stuff in order to render this guide.  You can download the WinFX goodies ( if you use the IE7 Beta, then the Runtime Component is for you) if your using IE6 then the ( Essentials Pack) is for you as this is a viewer for .xps files.

5 Microsoft Security Bulletins for April 2006 April 12, 2006

Microsoft released five security bulletins for the month of April:

MS06-013–Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (912812)

 MS06-014–Vulnerability in the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) Function Could Allow Code Execution (911562)

MS06-015–Vulnerability in Windows Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution (908531)

MS06-016–Cumulative Security Update for Outlook Express (911567)

 MS06-017–Vulnerability in Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions Could Allow Cross-Site Scripting (917627)

The first four of these bulletins are primarily workstation risks. We recommend deploying MS06-013 and MS06-015 as soon as possible. MS06-013 is especially urgent because details of some exploits are public and attackers are already using them.

The final bulletin, MS06-017, impacts Microsoft IIS servers running Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions or Microsoft SharePoint Team Services. Although Microsoft rates the severity of this exposure as only moderate, We would recommend loading the update on all affected servers as soon as possible.
