Microsoft Security Bulletin MS09-061 - Critical

Vulnerabilities in the Microsoft .NET Common Language Runtime Could Allow 
Remote Code Execution (974378)

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

  This security update resolves three privately reported vulnerabilities in 
  Microsoft .NET Framework and Microsoft Silverlight. The vulnerabilities could 
  allow remote code execution on a client system if a user views a specially 
  crafted Web page using a Web browser that can run XAML Browser Applications 
  (XBAPs) or Silverlight applications, or if an attacker succeeds in persuading 
  a user to run a specially crafted Microsoft .NET application. Users whose 
  accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less 
  impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. The 
  vulnerabilities could also allow remote code execution on a server system 
  running IIS, if that server allows processing ASP.NET pages and an attacker 
  succeeds in uploading a specially crafted ASP.NET page to that server and 
  executing it, as could be the case in a Web hosting scenario. Microsoft .NET 
  applications, Silverlight applications, XBAPs and ASP.NET pages that are not 
  malicious are not at risk of being compromised because of this vulnerability.

  This security update is rated Critical for all affected editions of the 
  Microsoft .NET Framework on Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 
  Vista, and Windows 7; Microsoft Silverlight 2 when installed on Mac; and 
  Microsoft Silverlight 2 when installed on all releases of Microsoft Windows 
  clients.
 
  This security update is rated Important for all affected editions of the 
  Microsoft .NET Framework on Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and 
  Windows Server 2008 R2.

  This security update is rated Moderate for Microsoft Silverlight 2 when 
  installed on all releases of Microsoft Windows servers.

  The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by modifying the way in 
  which the Microsoft .NET verifies and enforces the rules of Microsoft .NET 
  verifiable code and by modifying the way in which the Microsoft .NET Common 
  Language Runtime (CLR) handles interfaces.

  Recommendation. The majority of customers have automatic updating enabled 
  and will not need to take any action because this security update will be 
  downloaded and installed automatically. Customers who have not enabled 
  automatic updating need to check for updates and install this update 
  manually. For information about specific configuration options in automatic 
  updating, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 294871.

  For administrators and enterprise installations, or end users who want to 
  install this security update manually, Microsoft recommends that customers 
  apply the update immediately using update management software, or by 
  checking for updates using the Microsoft Update service.

Vulnerability Information

Microsoft .NET Framework Pointer Verification Vulnerability - CVE-2009-0090

  A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Microsoft .NET Framework 
  that could allow a malicious Microsoft .NET application to obtain a managed 
  pointer to stack memory that is no longer used. The malicious Microsoft .NET 
  application could then use this pointer to modify legitimate values placed at 
  that stack location later, leading to arbitrary unmanaged code execution. 
  Microsoft .NET applications that are not malicious are not at risk for being 
  compromised because of this vulnerability.

Microsoft .NET Framework Type Verification Vulnerability - CVE-2009-0091

  A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Microsoft .NET Framework 
  that could allow a malicious Microsoft .NET application to bypass a type 
  equality check. The malicious Microsoft .NET application could exploit this 
  vulnerability by casting an object of one type into another type, leading to 
  arbitrary unmanaged code execution. Microsoft .NET applications that are not 
  malicious are not at risk for being compromised because of this 
  vulnerability.

Microsoft Silverlight and Microsoft .NET Framework CLR Vulnerability - 
CVE-2009-2497

  A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Microsoft .NET Framework 
  that can allow a malicious Microsoft .NET application or a malicious 
  Silverlight application to modify memory of the attacker's choice, leading 
  to arbitrary unmanaged code execution. Microsoft .NET applications and 
  Silverlight applications that are not malicious are not at risk for being 
  compromised because of this vulnerability.
