⚡ TL;DR | Go Straight to the May 202Patch Tuesday Audit Report

Patch Tuesday is once again upon us. As always, our team has put together the monthly Patch Tuesday Report to help you manage your update progress. The audit report gives you a quick and clear overview of your Windows machines and their patching status. The May 2024 edition of Patch Tuesday brings us 61 new fixes, with 1 rated as critical. We’ve listed the most important changes below.

Windows MSHTML Platform Security Feature Bypass Vulnerability

The frist highlight of this month isn’t a vulnerability rated as “critical”, however its one that has already been exploited. CVE-2024-30040 is a vulnerability bypasses OLE mitigations in Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Office.

OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) mitigations in Microsoft 365 refer to security measures designed to protect against vulnerabilities related to OLE technology, commonly used for embedding objects between documents, by restricting its usage to prevent potential exploitation by malicious actors.

To exploit this vulnerability an attacker would need to convince a user to open a malicious document at which point the attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of that user.

Windows DWM Core Library Vulnerabilities

Next up are multiple vulnerabilities in the Windows DWM Core Library. The Windows Desktop Window Manager (DWM) Core Library is a component responsible for managing graphical elements, including rendering windows and applying visual effects, to provide a consistent user interface experience in Windows operating systems.

The most critical vulnerability is CVE-2024-30051 which has also been exploited already. This elevation of privilege vulnerability could give an attacker SYSTEM privileges if exploited successfully. Microsoft hasn’t shared details on how exploitation can take place.

Additionally, there were three other vulnerabilities in the Windows DWM Core Library, two EoP and one information disclosure vulnerability.

Microsoft SharePoint Server Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Last but not least, we have the only critical vulnerability of this month. A SharePoint RCE vulnerability. While there is no exploitation detected yet, Microsoft has listed it as being “more likely” to be exploited.

In order to exploit the vulnerability, Microsoft lists the following for CVE-2024-30044:

An authenticated attacker with Site Owner permissions or higher could upload a specially crafted file to the targeted Sharepoint Server and craft specialized API requests to trigger deserialization of file’s parameters. This would enable the attacker to perform remote code execution in the context of the Sharepoint Server.

Run the Patch Tuesday May 2024 Audit

To help manage your update progress, we’ve created the Patch Tuesday Audit that checks if the assets in your network are on the latest patch updates. The report has been color-coded to see which machines are up-to-date and which ones still need to be updated. As always, system administrators are urged to update their environment as soon as possible to ensure all endpoints are secured.

The Lansweeper Patch Tuesday report is automatically added to your Lansweeper Site. Lansweeper Sites is included in all our licenses without any additional cost and allows you to federate all your installations into one single view so all you need to do is look at one report, automatically added every patch Tuesday!
