Patch Tuesday Release: The Latest News

Microsoft has released 62 security patches today covering Internet Explorer (IE), Edge, ChakraCore, Hyper-V, Exchange, Windows components, .NET Core, SQL Server, and Microsoft Office.  12 of the 62 are listed as Critical.

CVE-2018-8589 with a severity of Important and a CVSS score of 7.8 is being actively exploited.  The most likely exploitation of this type of vulnerability is thought by many experts to be by global malware making this a very serious vulnerability.  We would highly recommend this be a priority for your IT Manager this month.

Patch Tuesday needed to fix file association bug

A cumulative update for Windows 10 from April 2018 has broken the file association settings with certain applications.

If this has impacted your users, we would recommend you include the patch in your next round of patch deployments. We have learned some third-party updates by Notepad++, which is a popular application used by software developers, loses its association with certain text file formats.

Robert Brown, Director of Services for Verismic said, “From our own experience of deploying tens of millions of updates worldwide, it is always the smallest bugs which impact your users the most and cause huge disruption in your users’ productivity.  We encourage all of our customers to have a robust testing process to ensure interruption to your workforce is minimized.

Adobe Fixes Critical Vulnerabilities

Adobe released their monthly patch list early this month, three additional updates have been released affecting Flash, Adobe Photoshop & Acrobat / Reader.

One of the three vulnerabilities identified as CVE-2018-15979 is currently being exploited, so if you are using Acrobat or Reader on your devices we would highly recommend this patch be prioritized.
