    Jerry Bryant provided important clarification regarding two of the pending Windows updates at the MSRC Blog in July 2009 Advance Notification:

    "First, we will be addressing the issue discussed in Security Advisory 971778 concerning a vulnerability in DirectShow. As noted in the advisory, we are aware of limited active attacks and we have been working aggressively to get a quality update shipped to customers.

    Second, our engineering teams have been working around the clock to produce an update for the issue discussed in Security Advisory 972890 (vulnerability in the Microsoft Video ActiveX Control) and we believe that they will be able to release an update of appropriate quality for broad distribution that protects against the attacks we detailed in the advisory and in an MSRC blog post by Christopher Budd. In the mean time, we encourage customers to continue to enable the workaround by running the “Microsoft Fix it” solution in the associated knowledge base article (KB972890)."
    See July 2009 Advance Notification for the complete announcement.
