Critical: Microsoft patches released to fix ActiveX vulnerabilities, new vulnerability in MS Office

I mentioned this last week, and Microsoft is planning to patch it tomorrow (Tuesday), from what I read. Stay alert and patch your systems as soon as you can.

As reference, here is the advisory that they released last week.

Also, there is a new advisory out there, affecting Microsoft Office. They are rating this as Critical, remote exploitation is possible (and has occured already), so keep your eyes peeled for a patch that should be released by MS as soon as possible.

UPDATE: bulletins have been released, navigate to http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS09-028.mspx and get this patched now. Exploits are in the wild, that means that machines are getting hacked as we speak.
