A second bulletin focuses on another remote codeexecution bug that affects MSN Messengers 6.2, 7.0, 7.5 and Windows Live Messenger 8.0.   A third bulletin deals with a remote code execution flaw in Visual Studio, while the advancenotification alert issued by Microsoft noted that a fourth will deal with Windows Vista.   This is a calmer month than August, which saw the biggest patch release of the year, which saw ninesecurity bulletins covering a total of 14 vulnerabilities.
