Elevation of Privilege
No restart required Microsoft Developer Tools
Vulnerability in Visual Studio Team Foundation Server Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2719584)
This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Visual Studio Team Foundation Server. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if a user clicks a specially crafted link in an email message or browses to a webpage that is used to exploit the vulnerability. In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to perform these actions. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to visit a website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or Instant Messenger message that takes them to the attacker’s website.
MS12-062 Important
Elevation of Privilege
No restart required Microsoft Server Software
Vulnerability in System Center Configuration Manager Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2741528)
This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if a user visits an affected website by way of a specially crafted URL. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit such a website. Instead, an attacker would have to persuade users to visit the website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker’s website.

The following link shows the Microsoft recommended Bulletin Deployment Priority and Severity and Exploitability Index.

As usual, as a UKFast customer, you will benefit from these updates being applied automatically unless you have opted out of this service.
