Microsoft Releases Security Updates to Address Remote Code Execution Vulnerabilities

Original release date: August 14, 2019

Microsoft has released security updates to address two remote code execution vulnerabilities, CVE-2019-1181 and CVE-2019-1182, in the following operating systems:

  • Windows 7 SP1
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows 10

An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected system. Similar to CVE-2019-0708—dubbed BlueKeep—these vulnerabilities are considered “wormable” because malware exploiting these vulnerabilities on a system could propagate to other vulnerable systems.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users and users and administrators to review the following resources and apply the necessary updates:
