Windows 10 - Server: Emergency security updates

Microsoft made it available late Tuesday emergency security updates to fix two vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Windows Codecs Library.

Vulnerabilities have been recorded as CVE-2020-1425 & CVE-2020-1457.  Security vulnerabilities affect only Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 versions.

According to Microsoft, the two security vulnerabilities can be exploited with the help of a specially designed image file.

So if a malicious image is opened in applications that use the built-in Windows Codecs library to manipulate the media, then it will allow intruders to run malicious code on a Windows computer and possibly take control of the device.

The two , που περιγράφονται ως ευπάθειες απομακρυσμένης εκτέλεσης κώδικα (RCE από το remote code execution) επιδιορθώθηκαν χθες αργά το βράδυ και δημοσιεύτηκαν δημόσια σήμερα το πρωί.

Updates to the Windows Codecs Library are available through the Windows Store application, not through Windows Update.

"Our customers do not need to take any action to receive the update," says Microsoft.

Η εταιρεία από το Redmond ανέφερε ότι τα τα αναφέρθηκαν ιδιωτικά και δεν έχουν χρησιμοποιηθεί μέχρι σήμερα που ανακοινώθηκαν δημόσια.

Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative, a program to broker communications between security researchers and larger companies, disclosed the vulnerabilities to Microsoft. Behind her it was researcher Abdul-Aziz Hariri, who delivered the bugs to the ZDI team. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
