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 November 2023 edition of Patch Tuesday brings us 58 new fixes, with 4 rated as critical. We've listed the most important changes below.
Windows DWM Core Library Vulnerability
This week CVE-2023-36033 is one of the most critical vulnerabilities. While not having the highest CVSS base score, "only" a 7.8, Microsoft does list that an exploit for this vulnerability has been detected. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain SYSTEM privileges, so its important that you adress this vulnerability ASAP.
Aside from this info, Microsoft hasn't revealed much more about the vulnerability, presumably to prevent further exploitation as people get to patching their devices.
Microsoft PEAP Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
The Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) vulnerability has one of the highest CVSS scores this month clocking in at a whopping 9.8. CVE-2023-36028 allows an unauthenticated attacker to attack a Microsoft Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) Server by sending specially crafted malicious PEAP packets over the network.
Luckily this does require you to utilize a Network Policy Server, so if you're not using that, you're in the clear.
Windows PGM Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
The last important vulnerability is one in the Windows Pragmatic General Multicast. CVE-2023-36397 also has a CVSS base score of 9.8 but als has a specific condition to it in order to exploit. The Windows message queuing service must be running in a PGM Server environment, if this is the casem an attacker could send a specially crafted file over the network to achieve remote code execution and attempt to trigger malicious code.
If you're looking for an overview of all your servers that have the MSMQ service enabled, you can use our Windows Server MSMQ Server Feature Audit.
Run the Patch Tuesday November 2023 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!
