I have recently upgraded to Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 14 and it informed me that my computer was vulnerable to 3 known Microsoft Security Vulnerabilities. I am using WindowsXP home and always make sure that it is automatically updated. I updated MS Office and that reduced the number of vulnerabilities shown to 1. This is shown as having a Very High risk level targeting Windows and refers to related bulletin MS05-009. I have looked at this bulletin and basically I do not understand it. As far as I know all the various applications are up to date. When I built my computer I set it up to dual boot and still have Windows98SE available, (although I no longer use it) I have also updated this, but I am still getting the same message. Can I safely ignore it?

It looks as if this issue is relating to remote access vulnerabilities in Windows Media Player , Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger.

I came to the conclusion that this is a false alarm since I have all the relevant updates.
