Patch Tuesday, August 2019

The August Patch Tuesday is here ringing in patches for a massive 97 CVEs. Across those CVEs 31 are rated as "Critical", 65 as "Important" and one as "Moderate".

On the "Critical" list are several Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerabilities including those that affect Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services, services that are often exposed publicly. There are also RCE vulnerabilities in Outlook and Word where a maliciously crafted document or email could allow an attacker to execute their code. Luckily the Outlook vulnerability can't be triggered by the simply using the Preview pane. A similar RCE affects .LNK or 'shortcuts' files, where an attacker could craft a malicious shortcut and would only need to get their target or victim to click on it to execute their code. There is also an RCE vulnerability in both DHCP servers and clients that could be triggered with a malicious DHCP lease request or response. DHCP is used to provide computers with network configuration information like IP address and DNS information.

On the "Important" list are several major Denial of Service vulnerabilities that affect HTTP/2 based web servers, including Windows HTTP protocol stack (CVE-2019-9511, CVE-2019-9512, CVE-2019-9513, CVE-2019-9514, CVE-2019-9518). There are also plenty of privilege escalation vulnerabilities in multiple software packages, including the Windows operating system itself. A vulnerability that might interest security professionals is a privilege escalation bug in Windows Defender, Microsoft's antimalware software. Specifically, the binary MpSigStub.exe could allow for arbitrary file deletion regardless of the user's access or privilege.

Luckily there are currently no public exploits for these vulnerabilities, but that's likely to change now that they've been disclosed. So get to patching and stay safe!
