Microsoft Security Update

Microsoft recently released a security update that lists Visual FoxPro 8 and 9 amongst the affected applications. In case you're wondering exactly what this is about, here are the details. This update provides patched versions of the following ActiveX controls that ship with VFP:

  • MSWinSck.ocx (Microsoft WinSock Control 6.0)
  • MSMask.ocx (Microsoft Masked Edit Control 6.0)
  • MSFlxGrd.ocx (Microsoft FlexGrid Control 6.0)
  • MSHFlxGd.ocx (Microsoft Hierarchical FlexGrid Control 6.0)
  • MSChrt20.ocx (Microsoft Chart Control 6.0)
  • ComCt232.ocx (Microsoft Animation Control 5.0, Microsoft UpDown Control 5.0)
  • MSComCt2.ocx (Microsoft Animation Control 6.0, Microsoft Date and Time Picker 6.0, Microsoft Flat Scrollbar Control 6.0, Microsoft MonthView Control 6.0, Microsoft UpDown Control 6.0)

In addition to updating your own system, remember to distribute the updated versions of any OCXs your applications use to your clients.
