Here are some of the most significant bugs from the past week in the BugBlog:
eEye Digital Security says they have found a bug in Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 that can be used by remote attackers. As a result, the attackers may be able to run their code on your computer, at the security level of the logged-in user. eEye sent the details on to Microsoft on 2/16. Keep an eye on their bulletin for updates. Until a fix is ready, be wary of Publisher files that you don't create yourself.
Try to install Windows Vista, and you may get this error report:
Error 0xC004F02A - The Software Licensing Service reported that the license is invalid.
What Microsoft says might be the case, however, is that the BIOS for this computer is incompatible with Vista, or is outdated. That means you may need a BIOS update. Microsoft has the details here.
Mozilla has released Firefox 22.214.171.124, along with Firefox 126.96.36.199 and SeaMonkey 1.0.8. This is a bugfix release that takes care of a number of bugs that could cause a crash and corrupt memory. Malicious websites may be able to take advantage of this bug to run hostile code. Get the updates either at their website or through the Firefox automatic update.
