Severity Rating: Critical
Revision Note: V1.1 (December 13, 2011): Corrected the kill bit information for the HP Photo Creative ActiveX control in the section, Third-Party Kill Bits. This is an informational change only. There were no changes to the security update files or detection logic.
Summary: This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft software. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page that instantiates a specific ActiveX control with Internet Explorer. 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. This update also includes kill bits for four third-party ActiveX controls.
