    Today we provide advance notification for the release of four bulletins for January 2014. All bulletins this month are rated Important in severity and address vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Office, and Dynamics AX. The update provided in MS14-002 fully addresses the issue first described in Security Advisory 2914486. We have only seen this issue used in conjunction with a PDF exploit in targeted attacks and not on its own. This only impacts customers using Windows XP or Server 2003 as more recent Windows versions are not affected.

    As always, we’ve scheduled the security bulletin release for the second Tuesday of the month, January 14, 2014, at approximately 10:00 a.m. PST. Revisit this blog then for analysis of the risk and impact, as well as deployment guidance, together with a brief video overview of the month’s updates. Until then, please review the ANS summary page for more information to help you prepare for security bulletin testing and deployment.

    Don’t forget, you can also follow the MSRC team’s recent activity on Twitter at @MSFTSecResponse.

    Thank you,
