Information Technologies strongly recommends you immediately update any systems running supported Windows OS versions (client and server) with the 2019-08 cumulative or security only patch.
As part of its August 13th patch bundle, Microsoft has released fixes for multiple CRITICAL RISK vulnerabilities in Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) that could enable a remote attacker to get full access to a system by sending a malicious RDP request to the victim’s computer.
All supported Windows OS versions (client and server) are affected.
- CVE-2019-1181, CVE-2019-1182, CVE-2019-1222 and CVE-2019-1226
- Windows operating systems should be updated with the 2019-08 cumulative or security only patch (the exact KB number is different per OS/patch level). A reboot is required.
As always, appropriate vendor-supplied patches or upgrades should be applied as soon as possible. If patching is not feasible, risk can be managed by removing the vulnerable system from service.
