Microsoft revises DirectX security bulletins

Microsoft revises critical DirectX-related security bulletins.

Microsoft issued two critical security bulletin revisions on Wednesday related to vulnerabilities in Microsoft DirectX.

The revisions relate to holes that could allow an attacker to run code remotely on the machine or take control of it if a user opened a malicious media file.

The bulletins were revised to add DirectX 9.0a as affected software, Microsoft said.

One of the updates is for Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and Vista. The other update covers those systems, as well as Server 2008.
