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.

Indeed, according to Ross Barrett, manager of security engineering at Rapid7, the IE patch addresses a vulnerability first demonstrated at thePwn2Own contest at the CanSecWest conference in March of this year.
"Microsoft has described this as extremely difficult to exploit, which I can only assume is a challenge to exploit writers everywhere to prove them wrong," Barrett quipped.

"The almost ubiquitous critical cumulative patch for all supported versions of Internet Explorer is back (MS15-009) after a one month hiatus, clearly Microsoft was saving up from last month because this advisory addresses 41 CVEs including CVE-2014-8967 which has been publically disclosed and CVE-2015-0071which is under limited targeted attack," said Ross Barrett, senior manager of security engineering at Rapid7.
"The IE CVE free-for-all is paired up with two critical remote code execution issues affecting all supported versions of Windows, except Server Core variants," said Barrett.

However, a close second when it comes to priorities will be the IE patch, especially for those businesses still stuck on XP. "The IE critical is the first that clearly would have applied to Windows XP, but for which a patch is not available," said Barrett.

"These issues are grouped by Adobe as APSB14-21, but actually include 12 CVEs, of which most are top priority patching issues for embedded Flash in the browser," says Ross Barrett, senior manager of security engineering for Rapid7.
