Microsoft Vbasic 6.0 runtime extended files
Posted on 2009-04-10
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 188.8.131.52. From what I can glean from the interwebs, I need version 184.108.40.206. 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?
