Among the addressed flaws is one associated with a CSS function in Internet Explorer that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code by visiting an attacker's web page.

Virtually all of Microsoft's supported operating systems will receive a patch, from Windows XP SP3 and Server 2003 SP2 through Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 are listed more than once, while affected Office software is limited to Visio 2002, 2003 and 2007.
