Microsoft Vbasic 6.0 runtime extended files

Running Retina on a govvie network.  I keep popping high risk vulnerabilities due to visual basic 6 extended files.  The hits reference MS security bulletin ms08-070.  Unfortunately I am not running any of the pgms noted in that article on my network.  The files that seem to be affected are msmask32.ocx and mscomct2.ocx.  Current version of those files is 6.0.84.18.  From what I can glean from the interwebs, I need version 6.1.98.12.  Of course microsoft does not offer any of those files alone and I don't know of a way to pull those files out of the MSI's for the aforementioned programs.  Can anyone verify the vulnerability and help me out with a suggestion on how to mitigate this?

There's a similar question at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Vulnerabilities/Q_24199174.html and I wonder if the answer I gave there is any help to you.  The asker of that question hasn't yet responded to my answer, but I've asked for an update so it might be worth "Monitoring" that question for any extra information they might share.

Jahboite,

I read the post you directed me to.  I was afraid that this might be the case, so I have a lot of fun ahead of me researching each and every program on each of my machines.  D-=

Thank you for the assist.

Jahboit,

As a further inquiry on this issue, is there ANYWHERE I can pull the files I am needing from the VB6 dev. env?

Sorrym I stopped monitoring this one.  There is apparently no solution for this.  I am actually just reimaging the machines in question and calling it good.  :)  Thanks Jah
