Third Brigade Says Users Safe

OTTAWA -- Third Brigade, (www.thirdbrigade.com) today announced that customers that have deployed Third Brigade Deep Security, its advanced Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), are protected from attacks which could exploit a wide range of critical vulnerabilities announced by Microsoft in their Security Bulletin for June, 2006. There are a total of eight critical vulnerabilities and they can allow an attacker to take control of an affected system if exploited successfully. This is the largest number of critical vulnerabilities announced in a monthly Microsoft security bulletin.

“These critical vulnerabilities affect software ranging from Windows services such as Routing and Remote Access, to applications such as Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player and Microsoft Office,” said Brian O’Higgins, Chief Technology Officer of Third Brigade. “Our ability to deliver protection for such a broad range of operating system and application software vulnerabilities proves the flexibility of our host-based deep packet inspection.”
