This month we got patches for 141 vulnerabilities. Of these, 17 are critical, 2 were previously disclosed, and one is already being exploited, according to Microsoft.

The exploited vulnerability is a Remote Code Execution (RCE) affecting Microsoft Windows Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) (CVE-2022-34713). According to the advisory, exploitation of the vulnerability requires that a user open a specially crafted file in different scenarios:

• In an email attack scenario, an attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending the specially crafted file to the user and convincing the user to open the file.

• In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a website (or leverage a compromised website that accepts or hosts user-provided content) containing a specially crafted file designed to exploit the vulnerability.

This CVE is a variant of the vulnerability publicly known as Dogwalk. The CVSS for this vulnerability is 7.8.

Amongst critical vulnerabilities, there is an RCE Windows Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) (CVE-2022-30133). The exploit vector for this vulnerability is ‘network’, no privilege is required, and it does not require any user interaction, which means this could be a wormable vulnerability. According to the advisory, “This vulnerability can only be exploited by communicating via Port 1723. An unauthenticated attacker could send a specially crafted connection request to a RAS server, which could lead to remote code execution (RCE) on the RAS server machine.”. If you have this service exposed to the Internet, it is recommended to apply the patch quickly. As a temporary workaround prior to installing the updates that address this vulnerability, you can block traffic through that port thus rendering the vulnerability unexploitable. The CVSS for this vulnerability is 9.8.

Another critical vulnerability worth mentioning is an elevation of privilege affecting Active Directory Domain Services (CVE-2022-34691). According to the advisory, “An authenticated user could manipulate attributes on computer accounts they own or manage, and acquire a certificate from Active Directory Certificate Services that would allow elevation of privilege to System.”. A system is vulnerable only if Active Directory Certificate Services is running on the domain. The CVSS for this vulnerability is 8.8.
