This month we got patches for 120 vulnerabilities total. According to Microsoft, two of them are being exploited (CVE-2020-1380 and CVE-2020-1464), and one was previously disclosed (CVE-2020-1464).

The previously known and already exploited vulnerability (CVE-2020-1464) is a Windows Spoofing Vulnerability, which may cause incorrect signature validation for files. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass security features and load improperly signed files.

The other exploited vulnerability (CVE-2020-1380) is a remote code execution (RCE) affecting Internet Explorer. It is related to the way the script engine handles objects in memory. An attacker who exploits this vulnerability could gain the same user privileges on the system.

The highest CVSS score this month (8.80) was associated with three vulnerabilities: CVE-2020-1509, CVE-2020-1585, and CVE-2020-1472. The CVE-2020-1509 is an LSASS Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability. An authenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted authentication request. The CVE-2020-1585 is a Microsoft Windows Codecs Library RCE Vulnerability. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability opening a specially crafted image file and take control of the affected system.

The third CVSS 8.80 (CVE-2020-1472) is a Netlogon Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability and is a little bit trickier to patch. An unauthenticated attacker would be required to use the Netlogon Remote Protocol (MS-NRPC) to connect to a domain controller to obtain domain administrator access. Microsoft is addressing this vulnerability in a two-part phase rollout and requires additional steps in addition to applying the updates. The second phase of the update will be available in February 2021. There is a special guideline on how to manage changes required for this vulnerability at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4557222/how-to-manage-the-changes-in-netlogon-secure-channel-connections-assoc
