Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2010
eEye Digital Security, a leading provider of IT security vulnerability management solutions, today announced its upcoming Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) will comprehensively address the largest Patch Tuesday to-date, in which Microsoft will issue 17 Security Bulletins addressing 40 vulnerabilities. Notably, two of the vulnerabilities are rated "Critical," 14 are rated "Important," and one is rated "Moderate."
eEye’s VEF sessions are held online, the second Wednesday of each month, the day after Patch Tuesday, when Microsoft discloses their monthly patches. This month’s session will be held December 15, 2010 at 11 AM (Pacific) / 2 PM (Eastern). It gives all attendees the opportunity to win an iPod Nano via the eEye Twitter page.
VEF sessions provide insight and information on recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors, as well as:
- A complete analysis of the latest critical vulnerabilities, vendor patches, and zero day threats
- Detailed assessment of the true criticality of each patch to best prioritize rollout
- Expert guidance on the actions necessary to protect your systems
eEye’s VEF is one of several free, online resources that the company provides to the IT security community. Minute with Maiffret provides fast, expert commentary on security issues. Zero Day Tracker provides a catalogue of the newest zero day vulnerabilities, instructions for quick remediation, and a historical record of past vulnerabilities.
“During the VEF, we openly advise on how to prioritize and address each Microsoft vulnerability announced on Patch Tuesday, information which is quite valuable to over-tasked IT Security professionals,” said Marc Maiffret, eEye cofounder and CTO. “The VEF continues a long-standing eEye tradition of helping the IT community not just through technology solutions, but also through the distribution of knowledge.”
