Default Microsoft warns of TLS/SSL flaw in Windows

Microsoft has issued Security Advisory (977377) to address a publicly disclosed vulnerability in the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols. The TLS and SSL protocols are implemented in several Microsoft products, both client and server. Currently Microsoft has concluded that it affects all supported versions of Windows: Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Server 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Server 2008 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows Server 2008 R2. Microsoft says it will update the advisory as the investigation progresses.

This warning should not be confused with the 13 Security Bulletins fixing 26 vulnerabilities Microsoft released today on this month's Patch Tuesday; the company is simply stating that it is investigating the flaw. Microsoft also makes sure to note that since the issue implicates an Internet standard, the company recognizes that it affects multiple vendors and is working on a coordinated response with its partners in the Internet Consortium for Advancement of Security on the Internet (ICASI).
