Executive Summary

Executive Summary:

This update resolves two newly-discovered, publicly and privately reported vulnerabilities. Each vulnerability is documented in this bulletin in its own “Vulnerability Details” section of this bulletin.

If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited the most severe of these vulnerabilities could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. 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.

We recommend that customers apply the update immediately.

What are the known issues that customers may experience when they install this security update? Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 883939 documents the currently known issues that customers may experience when they install this security update. The article also documents recommended solutions for these issues. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 883939.

I have received a hotfix from Microsoft or my support provider since the release of MS04-004. Is that hotfix included in this security update? Yes. When you install the security update that is intended for systems running Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, or on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1, the installer checks to see if one or more of the files that are being updated on your system have previously been updated by a Microsoft hotfix. However, the installer only detects hotfixes that were released since Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-038 and Internet Explorer Update Rollup 873377 or Internet Explorer Update Rollup 889669.

See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 883939 for additional information if you have to apply a hotfix that was released before Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-038 on a system that has the MS05-025 update installed.

For Internet Explorer 6 for Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 64-Bit Edition Version 2003 (Itanium), this security update contains hotfixes that were included with or after MS04-025, as well as fixes for all the security issues that are addressed in this update. However, the hotfix versions of the files that were included in this security update are only installed if you have previously installed an Internet Explorer hotfix to update any of the files that are listed in the “Security Update Information” section of this bulletin.

For Internet Explorer 5.01, Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2, and Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP, the MS05-025 security updates contain hotfixes that were included after MS04-004 up to and including the cumulative updates in MS05-025. The hotfix versions of the files that are included in this security update are installed regardless of whether you have previously installed an Internet Explorer hotfix to update any of the files that are listed in the “Security Update Information” section of this bulletin.

Does this update contain any security-related changes to functionality? Yes. Besides the changes that are listed in the “Vulnerability Details” section of this bulletin and in addition to changes introduced in previous Internet Explorer Bulletins, this update includes improvements to the Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker. The Pop-up Blocker was first included in Windows XP Service Pack 2 and is also included in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. For more information about the Pop-up Blocker, see to the product documentation.

The rendering of various image file formats, including GIF and BMP, has been made more robust to help prevent Internet Explorer from closing unexpectedly when it receives an invalidly-formed image.

A change was made to Internet Explorer for Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 so that it does not render the XBM image file format. This update adds this change to all other supported versions of Internet Explorer. This change has been made to help prevent the Internet Explorer process from closing unexpectedly when users view invalidly-formed images. The XBM format is no longer supported by Internet Explorer.

Additionally, this update sets the kill bit for older versions of the Microsoft DigWebX ActiveX control that is used in MSN. This control implements support for features that are available on the MSN Tech & Gadgets Web site. This includes the View & Organize feature and the Edit & Create feature. This control was also used by MSN Photomail to download photos from MSN. Older versions of this control have been found to contain a security vulnerability. To help protect customers who have this control installed, this update prevents older versions of this control from running in Internet Explorer. It does this by setting the kill bit for the older versions of this control that are no longer supported. For more information about kill bits, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 240797.

Vulnerability Details

PNG Image Rendering Memory Corruption Vulnerability - CAN-2005-1211

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Internet Explorer because of the way that it handles PNG images. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a malicious PNG image that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious Web site or viewed a malicious e-mail message. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.

Mitigating Factors for PNG Image Rendering Memory Corruption Vulnerability - CAN-2005-1211: •

In a Web-based attack scenario, an attacker would have to host a Web site that contains a Web page that is used to exploit this vulnerability. An attacker could also try to compromise a Web site and have it display malicious content. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit a Web site. Instead, an attacker would have to persuade them to visit the Web site, typically by getting them to click a link that takes them to the attacker's site or to a site that has been compromised by the attacker. •

An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the local user. 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.

The risk of attack from the HTML e-mail vector can be significantly reduced if you meet all the following conditions: •

Apply the update that is included with Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-040 or a later Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer. •

Use Microsoft Outlook Express 6 or a later version in its default configuration. •

Use Microsoft Outlook 2000 Service Pack 2 or a later version in its default configuration. Top of sectionTop of section

Workarounds for PNG Image Rendering Memory Corruption Vulnerability - CAN-2005-1211:

Microsoft has tested the following workarounds. While these workarounds will not correct the underlying vulnerability, they help block known attack vectors. When a workaround reduces functionality, it is identified in the following section. •

Read e-mail messages in plain text format if you are using Outlook 2002 or a later version, or Outlook Express 6 SP1 or a later version, to help protect yourself from the HTML e-mail attack vector.

Microsoft Outlook 2002 users who have applied Office XP Service Pack 1 or a later version and Microsoft Outlook Express 6 users who have applied Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 or a later version can enable this setting and view e-mail messages that are not digitally signed or e-mail messages that are not encrypted in plain text only.

Digitally signed e-mail messages or encrypted e-mail messages are not affected by the setting and may be read in their original formats. For more information about how to enable this setting in Outlook 2002, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 307594.

For information about this setting in Outlook Express 6, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 291387.

Impact of Workaround: E-mail messages that are viewed in plain text format will not contain pictures, specialized fonts, animations, or other rich content. Additionally: •

The changes are applied to the preview pane and to open messages. •

Pictures become attachments so that they are not lost. •

Because the message is still in Rich Text or HTML format in the store, the object model (custom code solutions) may behave unexpectedly. •

Disable PNG image rendering in Internet Explorer

To unregister Pngfilt.dll, follow these steps:

1.

Click Start, click Run, type "regsvr32 /u pngfilt.dll" (without the quotation marks), and then click OK.

2.

A dialog box appears to confirm that the unregistration process has succeeded. Click OK to close the dialog box.

3.

Close Internet Explorer, and reopen it for the changes to take effect.

To re-register Pngfilt.dll, use "regsvr32 pngfilt.dll" (without the quotation marks). •

Block PNG image rendering in Internet Explorer by using a Software Restriction Policy

To block PNG image rendering in Internet Explorer you can create a Software Restriction Policy. To create this policy, use a registry script or create a Group Policy setting to block the loading of the Pngfilt.dll.

Note Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or view the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe.

We recommend that you back up the registry before you edit it.

Use the following .reg file to un-register the PNG image rendering library in Internet Explorer. You can copy the following text, paste it into a text editor such as Notepad, and then save the file with the .reg file name extension.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer\CodeIdentifiers]

"TransparentEnabled"=dword:00000002

FAQ for PNG Image Rendering Memory Corruption Vulnerability - CAN-2005-1211:

What is the scope of the vulnerability? If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. 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.

What causes the vulnerability? An unchecked buffer in the PNG image rendering library in Internet Explorer.

What is PNG? PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics. The Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format was designed to replace the older and simpler GIF format and, to some extent, the much more complex TIFF format. For more information about PNG, visit the following Web site.

What might an attacker use the vulnerability to do? An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of the affected system.

How could an attacker exploit the vulnerability? An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by creating a malicious Web page or an HTML e-mail message and then persuading the user to visit the page or to view the HTML e-mail message. If the user visited the page or viewed the e-mail message, the attacker could access information from other Web sites, could access local files in predetermined locations on the system, or could cause malicious code to run in the security context of the locally logged on user. The vulnerability could not be exploited automatically through e-mail. For an attack to be successful, a user must click a malicious link that is sent in an e-mail message.

What systems are primarily at risk from the vulnerability? This vulnerability requires that a user is logged on and reading e-mail or visiting Web sites for any malicious action to occur. Therefore, any systems where e-mail is read or where Internet Explorer is used frequently, such as workstations or terminal servers, are at the most risk from this vulnerability. Systems that are not typically used to read e-mail or to visit Web sites, such as most server systems, are at a reduced risk.

What does the update do? The update removes the vulnerability by modifying the way that Internet Explorer validates the length of a message before it passes the message to the allocated buffer.

When this security bulletin was issued, had this vulnerability been publicly disclosed? No. Microsoft received information about this vulnerability through responsible disclosure.

When this security bulletin was issued, had Microsoft received any reports that this vulnerability was being exploited? No. Microsoft had not received any information to indicate that this vulnerability had been publicly used to attack customers and had not seen any examples of proof of concept code published when this security bulletin was originally issued. Top of sectionTop of section Top of sectionTop of section

XML Redirect Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CAN-2002-0648

An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Internet Explorer because of the way that it handles certain requests to display XML content. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a malicious Web page that could potentially lead to information disclosure if a user visited a malicious Web site or viewed a malicious e-mail message. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could read XML data from another Internet Explorer domain. However, user interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability.

Mitigating Factors for XML Redirect Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CAN-2002-0648: •

In a Web-based attack scenario, an attacker would have to host a Web site that contains a Web page that is used to exploit this vulnerability. An attacker could also try to compromise a Web site and have it display malicious content. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit a Web site. Instead, an attacker would have to persuade them to visit the Web site, typically by getting them to click a link that takes them to the attacker's site or to a site that has been compromised by the attacker. •

An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain access to XML on a system other than that of the attacker’s Web site. •

By default, Outlook Express 6, Outlook 2002, and Outlook 2003 open HTML e-mail messages in the Restricted sites zone. Additionally, Outlook 2000 opens HTML e-mail messages in the Restricted sites zone if the Outlook E-mail Security Update has been applied. Outlook Express 5.5 Service Pack 2 opens HTML e-mail messages in the Restricted sites zone if Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-018 has been applied. The Restricted sites zone helps reduce attacks that could try to exploit this vulnerability. •

The vulnerability could not be exploited automatically through e-mail. For an attack to be successful, a user must open an attachment that is sent in an e-mail message or click a link in an e-mail message. •

By default, Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2003 runs in a restricted mode that is known as Enhanced Security Configuration. This mode mitigates this vulnerability. See the FAQ section of this vulnerability for more information about Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration.

The risk of attack from the HTML e-mail vector can be significantly reduced if you meet all the following conditions: •

Apply the update that is included with Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-040 or a later Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer. •

Use Microsoft Outlook Express 6 or a later version in its default configuration. •

Use Microsoft Outlook 2000 Service Pack 2 or a later version in its default configuration. Top of sectionTop of section

Workarounds for XML Redirect Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CAN-2002-0648:

Microsoft has tested the following workarounds. While these workarounds will not correct the underlying vulnerability, they help block known attack vectors. When a workaround reduces functionality, it is identified in the following section. •

Set Internet and Local intranet security zone settings to “High” to prompt before running Active Scripting in these zones.

You can help protect against this vulnerability by changing your settings for the Internet security zone to prompt before running Active Scripting. You can do this by setting your browser security to High.

To raise the browsing security level in Microsoft Internet Explorer, follow these steps:

1.

On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options.

2.

In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab, and then click the Internet icon.

3.

Under Security level for this zone, move the slider to High. This sets the security level for all Web sites you visit to High.

Note If no slider is visible, click Default Level, and then move the slider to High.

Note Setting the level to High may cause some Web sites to work incorrectly. If you have difficulty using a Web site after you change this setting, and you are sure the site is safe to use, you can add that site to your list of trusted sites. This will allow the site to work correctly even with the high security setting. See the “Restrict Web sites to only your trusted Web sites” workaround for information about how you can add sites to the Trusted sites zone.

Alternatively, you can change your settings to prompt before running Active Scripting only. To do this, follow these steps:

1.

In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu.

2.

Click the Security tab.

3.

Click Internet, and then click Custom Level.

4.

Under Settings, in the Scripting section, under Active Scripting, click Prompt, and then click OK.

5.

Click Local intranet, and then click Custom Level.

6.

Under Settings, in the Scripting section, under Active Scripting, click Prompt.

7.

Click OK two times to return to Internet Explorer.

Impact of Workaround: There are side effects to prompting before running Active Scripting. Many Web sites that are on the Internet or on an intranet use Active Scripting to provide additional functionality. Prompting before running Active Scripting controls is a global setting that affects all Internet and intranet sites. You will be prompted frequently when you enable this workaround. For each prompt, if you feel you trust the site that you are visiting, click Yes to run Active Scripting. If you do not want to be prompted for all these sites, use the "Restrict Web sites to only your trusted Web sites" workaround. •

Restrict Web sites to only your trusted Web sites.

After you set Internet Explorer to require a prompt before it runs Active Scripting in the Internet zone and in the Local intranet zone, you can add sites that you trust to Internet Explorer's Trusted sites zone. This will allow you to continue to use trusted Web sites exactly as you do today, while helping to protect you from this attack on untrusted sites. We recommend that you add only sites that you trust to the Trusted sites zone.

To do this, follow these steps:

1.

In Internet Explorer, click Tools, click Internet Options, and then click the Security tab.

2.

In the Select a Web content zone to specify its current security settings box, click Trusted Sites, and then click Sites.

3.

If you want to add sites that do not require an encrypted channel, click to clear the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box.

4.

In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL of a site that you trust, and then click Add.

5.

Repeat these steps for each site that you want to add to the zone.

6.

Click OK two times to accept the changes and return to Internet Explorer.

Add any sites that you trust not to take malicious action on your computer. One in particular that you may want to add is "*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com" (without the quotation marks). This is the site that will host the update, and it requires an ActiveX control to install the update. •

Install the update that is described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-018 if you are using Outlook Express 5.5 SP2.

Outlook Express 5.5 Service Pack 2 opens HTML e-mail messages in the Restricted sites zone if Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-018 has been installed.

Customers who use one or more of these products could be at a reduced risk from an e-mail-borne attack that tries to exploit this vulnerability unless the user clicks a malicious link in the e-mail message. •

Read e-mail messages in plain text format if you are using Outlook 2002 or a later version, or Outlook Express 6 SP1 or a later version, to help protect yourself from the HTML e-mail attack vector.

Microsoft Outlook 2002 users who have applied Office XP Service Pack 1 or a later version and Microsoft Outlook Express 6 users who have applied Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 or a later version can enable this setting and view e-mail messages that are not digitally signed or e-mail messages that are not encrypted in plain text only.

Digitally signed e-mail messages or encrypted e-mail messages are not affected by the setting and may be read in their original formats. For more information about how to enable this setting in Outlook 2002, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 307594.

For information about this setting in Outlook Express 6, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 291387.

Impact of Workaround: E-mail messages that are viewed in plain text format will not contain pictures, specialized fonts, animations, or other rich content. Additionally: •

The changes are applied to the preview pane and to open messages. •

Pictures become attachments so that they are not lost. •

Because the message is still in Rich Text or HTML format in the store, the object model (custom code solutions) may behave unexpectedly. Top of sectionTop of section

FAQ for XML Redirect Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CAN-2002-0648:

What is the scope of the vulnerability? An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain access to XML on a system other than that of the attacker’s Web site.

What causes the vulnerability? Internet Explorer does not properly check to make sure that the XML data source is not redirected.

What is XML? Extensible Markup Language, or XML, is a data format that provides a way for disparate applications to share data. Data for a wide variety of purposes can be stored as XML data and used by other programs. Internet Explorer provides features that allow it to display and use XML data. For more information about XML, visit the following Web site.

What might an attacker use the vulnerability to do? An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain access to XML on a system other than that of the attacker’s Web site.

How could an attacker exploit the vulnerability? An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by creating a malicious Web page or an HTML e-mail message and then persuading the user to visit the page or to view the HTML e-mail message. If the user visited the page or viewed the e-mail message, the attacker could access local files on the system or could access information from other Web sites on the user’s behalf. The vulnerability could not be exploited automatically through e-mail. For an attack to be successful, a user must click a malicious link that is sent in an e-mail message.

What systems are primarily at risk from the vulnerability? This vulnerability requires that a user is logged on and reading e-mail or visiting Web sites for any malicious action to occur. Therefore, any systems where e-mail is read or where Internet Explorer is used frequently, such as workstations or terminal servers, are at the most risk from this vulnerability. Systems that are not typically used to read e-mail or to visit Web sites, such as most server systems, are at a reduced risk.

I am running Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2003. Does this mitigate this vulnerability? Yes. By default, Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2003 runs in a restricted mode that is known as Enhanced Security Configuration. This mode mitigates this vulnerability.

What is Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration? Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is a group of preconfigured Internet Explorer settings that reduce the likelihood of a user or of an administrator downloading and running malicious Web content on a server. Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration reduces this risk by modifying many security-related settings. This includes the settings on the Security tab and on the Advanced tab in the Internet Options dialog box. Some of the important modifications include the following: •

The security level for the Internet zone is set to High. This setting disables scripts, ActiveX controls, Microsoft Java Virtual Machine (MSJVM), and file downloads. •

Automatic detection of intranet sites is disabled. This setting assigns all intranet Web sites and all Universal Naming Convention (UNC) paths that are not explicitly listed in the Local intranet zone to the Internet zone. •

Install On Demand and non-Microsoft browser extensions are disabled. This setting prevents Web pages from automatically installing components and prevents non-Microsoft extensions from running. •

Multimedia content is disabled. This setting prevents music, animations, and video clips from running.

What does the update do? The update removes the vulnerability by blocking Internet Explorer from receiving redirected data from a domain that is different from the page that hosts a particular XML reference.

When this security bulletin was issued, had this vulnerability been publicly disclosed? Yes.

When this security bulletin was issued, had Microsoft received any reports that this vulnerability was being exploited? No. Microsoft had not received any information to indicate that this vulnerability had been publicly used to attack customers and had not seen any examples of proof of concept code published when this security bulletin was originally issued.

How does this vulnerability relate to the “XML File Reading via Redirect” vulnerability that is corrected by MS02-047? This update addresses a newly reported variation of the originally reported vulnerability. This newly-reported variation was not addressed as part of MS02-047. MS02-047 helps protect against the vulnerability that is discussed in that bulletin, but does not address this new variation.

Note When you install this security update on Windows Server 2003, the installer checks to see if one or more of the files that are being updated on your system have previously been updated by a Microsoft hotfix. If you have previously installed a hotfix to update an affected file, the installer copies the RTMQFE files to your system. Otherwise, the installer copies the RTMGDR files to your system.

For more information about this behavior, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 824994.

For more information about the Update.exe installer, visit the Microsoft TechNet Web site.

For more information about the terminology that appears in this bulletin, such as hotfix, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 824684.

Verifying that the Update Has Been Applied •

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

To verify that a security update has been applied to an affected system, you may be able to use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool. MBSA allows administrators to scan local and remote systems for missing security updates and for common security misconfigurations. For more information about MBSA, visit the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer Web site. •

File Version Verification

Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

1.

Click Start, and then click Search.

2.

In the Search Results pane, click All files and folders under Search Companion.

3.

In the All or part of the file name box, type a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Search.

4.

In the list of files, right-click a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Properties.

Note Depending on the version of the operating system or programs installed, some of the files that are listed in the file information table may not be installed.

5.

On the Version tab, determine the version of the file that is installed on your computer by comparing it to the version that is documented in the appropriate file information table.

Note Attributes other than the file version may change during installation. Comparing other file attributes to the information in the file information table is not a supported method of verifying that the update has been applied. Also, in certain cases, files may be renamed during installation. If the file or version information is not present, use one of the other available methods to verify update installation. •

Registry Key Verification

You may also be able to verify the files that this security update has installed by reviewing the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows Server 2003\SP2\KB883939\Filelist

Note This registry key may not contain a complete list of installed files. Also, this registry key may not be created correctly if an administrator or an OEM integrates or slipstreams the 883939 security update into the Windows installation source files. Top of sectionTop of section

Note When you install this security update on Windows XP Service Pack 1 the installer checks to see if one or more of the files that are being updated on your system have previously been updated by a Microsoft hotfix.

If you have previously installed a hotfix to update an affected file, the installer copies the RTMQFE files to your system.

If you have not previously installed a hotfix to update an affected file, the installer copies the RTMGDR files to your system.

Note For more information, see the “I have received a hotfix from Microsoft or my support provider since the release of MS04-004. Is that hotfix included in this security update?” question in the FAQ section of this bulletin. Also, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 883939 for more information if you have to apply a hotfix that was released before Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-038 on a system that has the MS05-020 update installed.

For more information about the terminology that appears in this bulletin, such as hotfix, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 824684.

Verifying that the Update Has Been Applied •

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

To verify that a security update has been applied to an affected system, you may be able to use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool. MBSA allows administrators to scan local and remote systems for missing security updates and for common security misconfigurations. For more information about MBSA, visit the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer Web site. •

File Version Verification

Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

1.

Click Start, and then click Search.

2.

In the Search Results pane, click All files and folders under Search Companion.

3.

In the All or part of the file name box, type a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Search.

4.

In the list of files, right-click a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Properties.

Note Depending on the version of the operating system or programs installed, some of the files that are listed in the file information table may not be installed.

5.

On the Version tab, determine the version of the file that is installed on your computer by comparing it to the version that is documented in the appropriate file information table.

Note Attributes other than the file version may change during installation. Comparing other file attributes to the information in the file information table is not a supported method of verifying that the update has been applied. Also, in certain cases, files may be renamed during installation. If the file or version information is not present, use one of the other available methods to verify update installation. •

Registry Key Verification

You may also be able to verify the files that this security update has installed by reviewing the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Internet Explorer 6\SP1\KB883939-IE6SP1-20050428.125228\Filelist

Note This registry key may not contain a complete list of installed files. Also, this registry key may not be created correctly when an administrator or an OEM integrates or slipstreams the 883939 security update into the Windows installation source files. Top of sectionTop of section

Although you can install some of the update packages that are described in this article on these unlisted versions of Windows and of Internet Explorer, Microsoft has not tested them to assess whether they are affected by these vulnerabilities. Microsoft has also not tested these versions to confirm that the update that this bulletin describes addresses these vulnerabilities. We recommend that you upgrade to a supported version of Windows and of Internet Explorer, and then install the appropriate update.

The software that is listed has been tested to determine whether the versions are affected. Other versions either no longer include security update support or may not be affected. To determine the support life cycle for your product and version, visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Web site.

For more information about how to obtain the latest service pack, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 260910.

Verifying that the Update Has Been Applied •

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

To verify that a security update has been applied to an affected system, you may be able to use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool. MBSA allows administrators to scan local and remote systems for missing security updates and for common security misconfigurations. For more information about MBSA, visit the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer Web site. •

File Version Verification

Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

1.

Click Start, and then click Search.

2.

In the Search Results pane, click All files and folders under Search Companion.

3.

In the All or part of the file name box, type a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Search.

4.

In the list of files, right-click a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Properties.

Note Depending on the version of the operating system or programs installed, some of the files that are listed in the file information table may not be installed.

5.

On the Version tab, determine the version of the file that is installed on your computer by comparing it to the version that is documented in the appropriate file information table.

Note Attributes other than the file version may change during installation. Comparing other file attributes to the information in the file information table is not a supported method of verifying that the update has been applied. Also, in certain cases, files may be renamed during installation. If the file or version information is not present, use one of the other available methods to verify update installation. •

Registry Key Verification

You may also be able to verify the files that this security update has installed by reviewing the following registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Internet Explorer 5.01\SP3\KB883939-IE501SP3-20050427.182635\Filelist

or

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Internet Explorer 5.01\SP4\KB883939-IE501SP4-20050427.182731\Filelist

Note These registry keys may not contain a complete list of installed files. Also, this registry key may not be created correctly when an administrator or an OEM integrates or slipstreams the 883939 security update into the Windows installation source files.

Office Update

Software Update Services:

By using Microsoft Software Update Services (SUS), administrators can quickly and reliably deploy the latest critical updates and security updates to Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003-based servers, and to desktop systems that are running Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional.

For more information about how to deploy this security update by using Software Update Services, visit the Software Update Services Web site.

Systems Management Server:

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) delivers a highly-configurable enterprise solution for managing updates. By using SMS, administrators can identify Windows-based systems that require security updates and can perform controlled deployment of these updates throughout the enterprise with minimal disruption to end users. For more information about how administrators can use SMS 2003 to deploy security updates, visit the SMS 2003 Security Patch Management Web site. SMS 2.0 users can also use Software Updates Service Feature Pack to help deploy security updates. For information about SMS, visit the SMS Web site.

Note SMS uses the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer, the Microsoft Office Detection Tool, and the Enterprise Update Scanning Tool to provide broad support for security bulletin update detection and deployment. Some software updates may not be detected by these tools. Administrators can use the inventory capabilities of the SMS in these cases to target updates to specific systems. For more information about this procedure, visit the following Web site. Some security updates require administrative rights following a restart of the system. Administrators can use the Elevated Rights Deployment Tool (available in the SMS 2003 Administration Feature Pack and in the SMS 2.0 Administration Feature Pack) to install these updates.
