Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

It's that time of the month again. Microsoft's patch bandwagon rolled into town yesterday loaded with three critical updates.

The updates aim to fix a vulnerability found in the Color Management Module of Windows that could allow remote code execution (MS05-036) and a security bug in JView Profiler (MS05-037) that might be used to crash Internet Explorer and inject hostile code. Last, but not least, is a vulnerability in several Microsoft Word versions involving font parsing that could also be used as a conduit to smuggle malicious code onto vulnerable systems (MS05-035). US CERT has produced an overview of Microsoft's three critical security fixes here. ®
