Ross Barrett, Senior Manager of Security Engineering at Rapid7 said that this is the first time Microsoft has addressed a single TrueType vulnerability in three separate advisories (MS13-052, MS13-053, and MS13-054).

"By splitting this out, Microsoft is directly addressing a complaint about previous 'rolled up' advisories where it was difficult to properly prioritize the multiple patches required to remediate the problem, and component patches were frequently missed," Barrett explained.

Ross Barrett, senior manager of security engineering at Rapid7, agrees. "If this is truly a remotely exploitable issue that does not require user interaction, then it's a potentially wormable issue and definitely should be put at the top of the patching priority list," Barrett says. Another critical alert, Bulletin 1, affects current versions of operating systems Windows 8 (and Windows RT) and Windows Server 2012, as well as earlier versions back through Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
