Storm-0978 Attacks Mitigation Audit

Software Vulnerability

Monitor Your Mitigation Progress for CVE-2023-36884

CISA has ordered federal agencies to mitigate the REC zero-day vulnerabilities affecting Windows and Office before the 8th of August. This gives you just three weeks to implement the mitigations. The vulnerabilities have been exploited in phishing attacks against NATO. The exploited remote code execution vulnerabilities have been collectively tracked as CVE-2023-36884. Microsoft has confirmed that these vulnerabilities have been exploited in cyberattacks against government entities in North America and Europe. The attackers used malicious Office documents impersonating the Ukrainian World Congress organization to target participants of the NATO Summit in Vilnius.

If you are using Microsoft 365 Apps versions 2302 or higher, you are safe from attachments that try to exploit the vulnerability. Otherwise, you can set the FEATURE_BLOCK_CROSS_PROTOCOL_FILE_NAVIGATION registry key to avoid exploitation. If you are using the registry key. If you’re looking for a more basic view of which Office versions you have in your environment, you can use the Microsoft Office Version Audit.

Before running the audit, add the registry keys recommended by Microsoft’s security advisory to your custom registry scanning.
