    Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday update now available with fixes


    Microsoft released its new set of Patch Tuesday updates for which is now available for all users. The latest updates comes with fixes for not less than 51 vulnerabilities which effects Windows operating system, Microsoft Edge and Office Suite.

    Microsoft recommends users to install the latest set of Patch Tuesday updates on their desktops as soon as they are available to stay away from any major issues.

    The Patch Tuesday updates comes with more fixes for the Spectre vulnerability which was a major issue affecting Windows 7 users. The Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability mostly effected the Windows 7 PCs and some Intel processors with the company having already released many patches earlier to fix the issues pertaining to the Spectre vulnerability and we expect Intel to ship new microcode updates in the coming weeks after the latest Patch Tuesday update.

    Microsoft has also made sure to fix vulnerability issue with a Remote Code flaw which would help an attacker to run arbitrary code in the Local System Account.

    “To exploit the vulnerability, the attacker would use a malicious DNS server to send corrupted DNS responses to the target,” Microsoft says, adding that this update changes the way DNSAPI.dll handles DNS responses.

    The Redmond Giant also confirms a critical flaw allowing remote code execution which improperly handles objects in memory. This would make it easy for the attacker in exploiting the vulnerability and take control of the system.

    The attacker has the chance of sending an infected file to the HTTP.sys server and take full control of the desktop. The latest update fixes the vulnerability in a way where the HTTP Protocol Stacks doesn’t get vulnerable to the infected file.

    Microsoft says that this vulnerability is effecting only Windows 10 PCs and recommends users to install the latest Patch update. The latest Patch Tuesday update have been termed as June 2018 update and is available via the Windows Update. Remember that a reboot of your device is required to download the June 2018 Patch Tuesday update.

    Microsoft passes 130 security fixes for 2015 with final Patch Tuesday


    Microsoft passes 130 security fixes for 2015 with final Patch Tuesday update

    Microsoft issues final 2015 Patch Tuesday update

    Microsoft has issued its final Patch Tuesday update of 2015, taking the total number of security fixes for the year to 135. This is well in excess of the 85 issued in 2014.

    The December update contained 12 fixes, eight of which are rated critical while the other four are rated as important.

    The critical fixes relate to key Microsoft products including Internet Explorer, its new Edge browser, the Silverlight video player and issues within Windows, as well as Skype for Business and Lync. The four important fixes all relate to Windows.

    The MS15-124 fix for Internet Explorer is a cumulative update for the browser, fixing several issues. Microsoft said the most severe of these could allow remote code execution if a user visits a specifically crafted web page in IE. The Edge update fixes the same problem.

    “An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user,” explains Microsoft in its notes.

    Meanwhile, the MS15-128 fix covers similar issues in Microsoft Windows, .NET Framework, Microsoft Office, Skype for Business, Microsoft Lync and Silverlight.

    “The vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or visits a web page that contains specially crafted embedded fonts," Microsoft's notes explain.

    One other notable fix is MS15-135, which, while only rated as important, is the issue that Qualys CTO Wolfgang Kandek said businesses should focus on first, as it addresses a zero-day vulnerability within the Windows kernel.

    “There is no further information about how widely spread the vulnerability and its exploit are, but it is worth a top spot in our priority list," he said.

    Another fix Kandek said IT admins should focus on is MS15-131, which covers an issue within Microsoft Office and is rated as critical.

    "CVE-2015-6172 is a critical vulnerability in Outlook that is triggered by a maliciously formatted email message," he said.

    "There is no reasonable workaround: Microsoft suggests turning off the preview pane - the digital equivalent of 'Just don’t do it', so patch this vulnerability as soon as possible."

    Kandek also said that while part of the increase in vulnerabilities found and fixed in 2015 can be attributed to the release of new products, such as Windows 10 and its Edge browser, the focus on finding security issues is also growing.

    “The majority of the increase is due to new parts of the Windows ecosystem that are being investigated for the first time, a tendency that shows how much more important computer security has become over the years," he said.
