    Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-058 (outlook express)

    Unchecked Buffer in Outlook Express S/MIME Parsing Could Enable System Compromise (Q328676)
    Originally posted: October 10, 2002

    Summary
    Who should read this bulletin: Customers using Microsoft® Outlook Express

    Impact of vulnerability: Run code of attackers choice.

    Maximum Severity Rating: Critical

    Recommendation: Customers using Outlook Express should apply the patch

    Affected Software:

    Microsoft Outlook Express 6.0
    Microsoft Outlook Express 5.5
    Note: Microsoft Outlook is a different product than Microsoft Outlook Express, and is not affected by the vulnerability.

    The fix for this issue was included in Windows XP Service Pack 1, and in Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1. If you’ve installed either of these two service packs, you’re already protected against the vulnerability and don’t need the patch.

    Why are the just now releasing the patch when SP1 was released more than a month ago??? I don't get it... why not release all the patches associated with SP1 at the same time as the release of SP1???
    Bewildering.

    My guess is it's their subtle way of telling everyone to upgrade to IE 6.0 SP1.
