DLL hijacking vulnerabilities
FYI, Wolfgang Kandek, CTO, Qualys, Inc. writes:

"We recommend installing the hotfix in KB2264107 and setting the registry to not allow loading of binaries via network shares and WebDAV (setting 2) as soon as possible."


My comment:

Setting the value to 1 as recommended by Microsoft does not prevent loading of binaries from network shares.

Proactive security = we try to get fixes together and get Microsoft to get them out there so we can stop this stuff in its tracks before it becomes an issue.

Reactive security = A SQL Slammer type worm with everything crashing and we don't have any tools to restore traffic and usability.

Your choice...
