Patch Tuesday, August 2020

August's Patch Tuesday is here with 120 CVEs patched. That includes 100 rated as "Important" and 20 rated as "Critical". The bulk of the "Critical" list is made up of various media libraries and codecs where a Remote Code Execution vulnerability can be exploited simply by opening or playing a maliciously generated image, video, or sound file. You'll also find an RCE vulnerability patched in .NET and a Privilege Escalation vulnerability patched in NetLogon.

The long list of vulnerabilities rated as "Important" is mainly a list of Privilege Escalation issues across a variety of software packages including the Office suite, Jet Database, .NET, Sharepoint, the Windows Backup engine and others.

Two of these vulnerabilities, CVE-2020-1380, and CVE-2020-1464, have been publicly exploited. CVE-2020-1464 is a Spoofing vulnerability that affects how Windows identifies digitally signed files. An attacker could potentially bypass the signature verification process in order to execute unauthorized code. CVE-2020-1380 is a Remote Code Execution vulnerability in the Windows Scripting Engine.

With two of these vulnerabilities already being exploited, make sure you patch asap.
