⚡ TL;DR | Go Straight to the April 2020 Patch Tuesday Audit Report.

Microsoft’s April 2020 Patch Tuesday is here with important fixes.

The April 2020 Patch Tuesday updates from Microsoft have arrived. The update contains 113 vulnerabilities in certain Microsoft products, with 19 that are rated critical. There are also 3 Zero-Day vulnerabilities reported.

With most of the workforce working from home, IT professionals are facing challenging times installing the updates released in the Patch Tuesday of April 2020.

The biggest challenge is to secure your IT environment during remote work. In a previous blog post, we published some tips for Remote IT Asset Management with Lansweeper to help you secure your remote workforce. Because of the expanding demand for VPNs and tools that allow communication and collaboration, a lot of vulnerabilities have surfaced.

3 Critical Zero-day Vulnerabilities

The Patch Tuesday, April 2020 update includes three critical zero-day vulnerabilities. There are two that are currently exploited: CVE-2020-0935 which is an Elevation of Privilege within Windows OneDrive and CVE-2020-1020 because the Adobe Font Manager Library has a vulnerability that can allow remote code execution.

Although the attacks specifically have targeted Windows 7 systems, not all Win7 systems will receive a patch since the Windows 7 End of Support in January of this year. Only those who purchased Extended Security Updates (ESUs) will receive the patch.

There is one more zero-day vulnerability covered in this month’s Patch Tuesday. CVE-2020-0938 is an exploited issue that allows Remote Code Execution within Adobe Font Manager Library so an attacker then has the ability to install programs, change data, add new accounts and much more. This can be obtained in a few ways such as letting the user open a specially made document.
